The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will host a July 1 online public hearing on Enbridge Energy's proposed reroute of its Line 5 oil pipeline in Ashland, Bayfield and Iron counties.

The hearing will cover the application for a waterway and wetland permit as well as the proposed scope of the environmental impact statement that will be prepared for the overall project, the WDNR said in a news release.

Construction on the proposed Line 5 reroute would stretch approximately 42 miles of new 30-inch pipeline south of the Bad River reservation after the tribe filed a lawsuit last summer to have the pipeline shut down and moved off its land.
