Alternative oil pipeline route criticized by Dayton, Leech Lake Ojibwe, Enbridge

DULUTH, Minn. — A judge’s recommendation that the Line 3 oil pipeline replacement should follow its existing route across northern Minnesota — through two reservations instead of around them, as Enbridge had proposed — is being met with criticism from all sides, including the state’s governor.

Gov. Mark Dayton, the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe and Enbridge have taken issue with Administrative Law Judge Ann O’Reilly’s recommendation, released Monday, which calls for the in-trench replacement of the 50-year-old pipeline through its existing route that includes the Leech Lake and Fond du Lac reservations.
