Enbridge Energy has already built a 14-mile stretch of Line 3 from the Minnesota line to its terminal in Superior, Wis., but the rest of the project faces uncertainty.

A citizen advisory group at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has collapsed following the regulator's decision to issue a water quality permit to Enbridge Energy for its Line 3 oil pipeline cutting through Minnesota.

The bulk of the agency's Environmental Justice Advisory Group has resigned in protest over the permitting decision, saying in a letter Tuesday to MPCA Commissioner Laura Bishop that "we cannot continue to legitimize and provide cover for the MPCA's war on Black and brown people."

A dozen of the board's 17 members signed the letter, which called the water quality permit the "final straw" in a series of MPCA actions they said sidelined the advisory group. Among those resigning is Winona LaDuke, a member of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe and executive director of Honor the Earth who strongly opposes the pipeline.
