EQB Draft Stds & Criteria out!

December 13th, 2013


Above is the state of silica sand mining in Minnesota.   Below are the Minnesota Environmental Quality
Board’s “hot off the press” this morning Draft Standards and Criteria:

Tools for Local Govt draft DECEMBER 13_2013

I like the framing of it as “Tools for Local Govt” because it’s clearer that this is something that requires an “opt in” and is not state regulation.  It’s huge, 168 pages, and we’ve only got until 1p on December 18, when the EQB’s silica sand mining subcommittee will be reviewing these draft Standards & Criteria.
