These are from a series of aerial photos by Jim Tittle of frac sand mines in Wisconsin.  The large holding ponds located on the grounds of the sand mines may be contaminated by chemicals used in the processing of sand and the holding ponds have already burst at at least one mine site in Saint Croix County (for more information on the spill, click here).
