Sand Trucks

Frac sand trucks pass back and forth on Hwy. 8 between the mine in the Town of Sumner and a drying and loading site in Weyerhaeuser. 

After 5 years of frac sand being mined and trucked out of the Town of Sumner, money continues to stream back in through a funding deal struck between the small township and an international company. 

Since 2015, more than $1.2 million has been collected from Source Energy Services for Sumner Community Foundation, based on a rate of 20 cents per ton of sand mined from the ground.
