Public Utilities Commission: Represents Forward Progress

Better In Our Back Yard is pleased with the Public Utilities Commission’s quick decision to unanimously agree to advance the process for the Line 3 Replacement Project by asking the Commerce Department to conduct a further analysis of Enbridge’s revised EIS within 60 days. This decision represents forward progress for the first time in months.

North Dakota and Minnesota’s 330-mile portion is the last portion that will be replaced in a pipeline that spans over 1100 miles between Edmonton in Alberta, Canada and Superior, Wisconsin.

Enbridge’s Line 3 Replacement project is the most thoroughly reviewed pipeline project in Minnesota’s history – it’s time to move forward with Line 3 Replacement Project that will energize the Northern Minnesota Economy and deliver safe transportation of crude oil.

Great news all around for Responsible Industrial Development in Northern Minnesota!
