- A Wabasha, Minn., citizens group is appealing a conditional use permit for a frac-sand-loading facility, according to KAAL TV. The “Friends of Wabasha” filed the appeal with the City Planning Commission. The group opposes the granting of the permit to Superior Sand Systems last month. The permit allows Superior Sands to build a loading facility for transferring silica sand from trucks onto trains for transport to North Dakota and Texas for use in the oil and gas extraction process called hydraulic fracturing.
