Public has say on Enbridge proposal


Public comment was divided and protesters from both sides, pro and con, were on hand when a public “scoping” meeting on a proposed Enbridge pipeline replacement took place in McGregor Aug. 25.

Enbridge Energy LLC has applied to the state of Minnesota for a certificate of need to replace its Line 3 pipeline. Enbridge’s application for pipeline replacement has been submitted and deemed complete. The meetings represented the public’s first opportunities to provide input. The company will abandon its existing Line 3 in place and build a new Line 3 carrying Alberta tar sands, alongside the Sandpiper pipeline, on whichever route is ultimately chosen. Enbridge’s preferred route runs through Aitkin County.
