Environmental groups and Ojibwe bands file appeals on Enbridge pipeline approval


December 20, 2018

Three environmental groups and two Ojibwe bands on Wednesday filed lawsuits challenging the state's approval of Enbridge's controversial new $2.6 billion oil pipeline planned for northern Minnesota.

The lawsuits, filed with the Minnesota Court of Appeals, seek to overturn a June decision by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC). By a unanimous vote, the PUC granted a "certificate of need" for Enbridge's new pipeline, which would ferry Canadian oil across Minnesota to the company's terminal in Superior, Wis.
