Silica handling in Owego

Stopping yesterday in Owego just west of Binghamton, I toured the town depot where silica is brought by rail from the west, stored in a large 4 chamber tower, loaded into silver tankers, and transported to Pennsylvania for fracking.  How many other such depots exist in our NYS towns, blowing dangerous silica dust over its citizenry in addition to the workers on the site?
