Groups want Minnesota regulators to reconsider Sandpiper pipeline route


Three environmental groups and the White Earth Band of Ojibwe have asked state regulators to reconsider its decision on a proposed crude oil pipeline across northern Minnesota, arguing that environmental risks and tribal rights haven’t been fully considered.

Requests by the band, Friends of the Headwaters, Honor the Earth, and the Carlton County Land Stewards set the stage for potential litigation if the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission declines to reconsider its recent approval of the need for Enbridge Energy’s Sandpiper ­pipeline.
