Enbridge pipeline hearing tonight on White Earth Indian reservation


Enbridge Energy officials will visit the White Earth Indian Reservation Tuesday to hear concerns about the company's proposed pipeline replacement project.

The Calgary-based energy company is looking to replace 1,031 miles of the 50-year-old oil pipeline, known as Line 3. Nearly 300 miles of that line run through northern Minnesota, from Neche, N.D., to Superior, Wis., often following Highway 2.

Enbridge plans to re-route the replacement line 55 miles farther along the proposed Sandpiper corridor from Clearbrook to Superior, but the project requires a certificate of need from the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.
