A sand plant is being built on the northeast corner of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
I might suppose this will supply 'frac' and drilling sand going to the natural gas producing areas of the south-central U.S. and Canada?
Looking closer, two Wisconsin Northern engines are by the main track on the right.
Eight silos are being built.
Here's some links about this area. Use your BACK button to return to my page.
