We just added a new tab on our blog for information on the proposed expansion of Enbridge Line 3 through northern Minnesota. It is our state’s version of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Enbridge is a large energy transportation company that owns a system of crude oil pipelines. It has several tar sands pipelines running through Minnesota. It wants to abandon the current Line 3 in the ground and install a new and larger pipeline. The Minnesota section of the new Line 3 would be 337 miles long, and get rerouted to cut through the Mississippi Headwaters region as well as prime wild ricing areas.
There are many reasons this is a bad idea and unnecessary. Go to the Enbridge Line 3 Page on our blog for Fact Sheets and a chronology of blogs we have written on the topic.
