Minnesota pollution regulators make decision that will delay $2.6B Enbridge pipeline project


Minnesota pollution regulators will do a deeper inquiry into Enbridge's permit applications for its controversial new oil pipeline, a move that would push back most construction until 2021.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) said Wednesday it will conduct a "contested case" hearing on a "401" water permit needed for the $2.6 billion project, which would replace Enbridge's deteriorating Line 3.

The hearing, to be scheduled later this summer, will focus on Enbridge's pipeline construction at water crossings and on wetlands.
