Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters Institute: helping prevent frac mining along the Lower Wisconsin Riverway

When an out-oWisconsin Riverf-state mining company with a history of environmental violations pursued a permit to mine frac sand along the banks of the Lower Wisconsin Scenic Riverway, Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters Institute supporters sprang into action.  They generated more than 2,200 letters to Riverway Board members and turned out to the hearings in big numbers. In the end, the Board cast a decisive 6-2 vote rejecting the permit.
