In today’s edition of the Heartland Daily Podcast, Isaac Orr, Heartland Research Fellow for energy policy, joins H. Sterling Burnett to talk about his newly released study on the impact of frac sand mining – Social Impacts of Industrial Silica Sand (Frac Sand) Mining: Land Use and Value.
The study focuses on property rights, property values and other amenities. Orr’s research shows there is limited evidence frac sand mining harms adjacent or surrounding property values in general and property rights are not affected in a way that has been measured.
