An attorney for environmentalist groups argued Thursday before the Minnesota Court of Appeals why they think the state erred in granting water permits for Enbridge's controversial new pipeline.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) granted the permits to Enbridge in November, one of the last approvals the company needed to start construction on the $3 billion replacement for its Line 3.

The appellate court has 90 days to rule; the pipeline is 60% complete and is slated to ship oil in the fourth quarter.
