PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD NOW OPEN FOR US ARMY CORPS PERMITS!

The federal review process for a new Line 3 pipeline has begun. The US Army Corps of Engineers is accepting public comments through Jan. 21, 2019.  Enbridge needs permits from the Army Corps in order to cross navigable waters and wetlands.  Of the 211 waterbodies that the new pipeline corridor would cross, 3 are considered “navigable waters” - the Red River of the North along the ND border in Kittson County, the Red Lake River in Pennington County, and the Mississippi River in Aitkin County.  Of the 330 mile new route, the proposed pipeline would cross 78 miles of wetlands, impacting over 1,000 acres of wetland temporarily during construction, and 11 acres permanently.

Although they promise that “any adverse effects on historic properties will be resolved prior to USACE authorization,” the Army Corps is starting this public input process before the completion of the Tribal Cultural Surveys, for which the impacted Ojibwe governments have fought hard.

If you are able, please submit a comment to voice your opinion about the pipeline, and request a public hearing:

Email - CEMVP-L3R-PN-Comments@usace.army.mil

Mail - St. Paul District Corps of Engineers, 180 5th Street E., Suite 700, Saint Paul MN 55101

Sign the Line 3 Statement of Opposition!  

We are united in opposition to Enbridge's proposed new Line 3 oil pipeline.  The pipeline's impacts on our economy, natural resources, and public health, and its violations of Indigenous rights are unacceptable.  Residents of the Great Lakes should not be forced to assume such risks for a project that is economically unviable in the long-term and serves no clear public purpose.  We call on Governor Dayton and our state agencies to oppose the pipeline project because of the decline in global oil demand, the rapid ongoing transition to renewable energy, and the urgency of the climate crisis.  We call on the MN Public Utilities Commission to deny the Certificate of Need for Line 3 on grounds that the project is not in the best interest of the people.
