In northeast Iowa, we work with our members and allies to prevent new frac sand mining projects. A major part of the fracking process, the mining and processing of frac sand generate particulate matter, which can cause serious respiratory and cardiovascular damage when inhaled.
Food & Water Watch is part of the Bakken Pipeline Resistance Coalition to stop the approval of the proposed Bakken Pipeline, also known as the Dakota Access Pipeline. The Bakken pipeline would threaten Iowa farmland and threatens communities throughout the state with potential spills and explosions.
