The Price of Sands showing Wed 12th

UW-Eau Claire’€™s Social Cinema series presents:
A documentary film about the frac sand mining boom in Wisconsin and Minnesota, including people and places in the Chippewa Valley
Wednesday, November 12
Woodland Theater (Third floor), UW-Eau Claire Davies Student Center
*FREE and open to the public.

Due to a rapid increase in demand, pure silica sand has become a valuable commodity for use in hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas, and mines are opening here at a rapid rate. The film explores the impact on communities, roads, land, water, public health, and local economies.

SPECIAL GUESTS will present and answer questions following the film screening:
Jim Tittle, film director
Dr. Crispin Pierce, Associate Professor of Environmental Public Health, UW-Eau Claire
