In response to the potential entry of the frac sand mining industry into the area, Winneshiek County seeks research and recommendations on best practices for interacting with the industry. This project brought together the University of Iowa Citizen lawyer program with county attorneys to provide legal research and analysis on regulatory options available to the county. Students conducted statutory and case law research to contribute to the development of the potential regulations being considered by the county.
