Sand Concerns
Letter to the Editor
Wednesday, November 16, 2011 • Posted November 16, 2011

Dear Editor,We have heard that there are pros and cons towards building the new sand plant. We would like to express our opinion. Our concerns on this topic would be air pollution, and affects towards the wildlife, and enviroment. Also, damage to the fields, vehicles, roads, and the community because the trucks are going through town.Their main way of getting sand would be pumping out alot of ground water. During the major drought, this leaves a big problem for ranchers, and farmers who are struggling to keep their animals and crops alive. It is said the drought might last until 2013!! Pumping this water out can leave farmers and ranchers in a bind for 2 more years.But on the other end it would boost the economy in Mason. Bring tax dollars into the school systems and county, and the roads. Bring jobs to Mason.But only time will tell how this coming sand plant will affect our community.

Sincerely,

Boy Scout Troop 281

Mason T.X.
