Enbridge Line 3

Minnesota has an opportunity to stop an unnecessary and ill-advised crude oil pipeline project in our state.

Enbridge, a large energy transportation and delivery business, has several tar sands oil pipelines running through Minnesota. It has proposed abandoning an existing pipeline (Line 3) in the ground and installing a new and larger pipeline, including a partial reroute. The proposed route would cut right through the Mississippi Headwaters region as well as prime wild ricing areas.

Below are resources to help you understand the proposal and why it is a bad idea for Minnesota.
