Frac Sand Mine Concerns

  • No study shows that there is enough water to supply SRS’s needs. A study by Dr. Ken Kolm shows there is likely to be a serious shortfall.
  • The city is taking the risk that future water could be more expensive, not SRS. The contract ties SRS’s water payments to the overall inflation rate, not the price of water to Kanab’s residents.
  • The city is incurring substantial legal fees for the SRS project.
  • The city will not get this money back if SRS pulls out, which out is likely given the collapse of the frack sand market in the last year.
  • The city can rescind the contract.
