Sand Mines in Augusta Wisconsin

The Progress of Sand Mines in Wisconsin in Eau Claire County

September 2012 - October 2012 - January 2013

Piles of Sand begin to dwarf the hills.   When the wind blows, the dust settles everywhere.  Breathing the silica for a number of years is a certain health hazard.  There is an Amish Community Rural School directly across the road from the Sand Mine
