Frac sand company to make $500K donation to lake project


Independence (WQOW) - A lake project is about to get a big lift from a frac sand company:  A $500,000 lift.

On Thursday, Hi-Crush will officially make the donation to the Bugle Lake restoration project in Independence.

The community has been raising money for several years for the project.  Erosion has reduced the depth of Bugle Lake.  The quality of the water is also a concern.  Independence and Whitehall have annexed land to be used by Hi-Crush for a $100 million frac sand project.
