Better In Our Back Yard (BIOBY) is extremely disappointed to hear about today’s announcement that the Minnesota Court of Appeals has reversed their ruling on the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) for Enbridge’s Line 3 replacement project. Replacing this aging pipeline is critical in protecting our environment and strengthening our communities.
While this decision will certainly delay the project, eight of the nine aspects of the FEIS have been affirmed, and BIOBY remains confident in Enbridge’s ability to continue moving forward with the regulatory process.
Line 3 is the most closely-studied pipeline project in the state’s history, and Enbridge along with their many partners are committed to completing the necessary work safely. We stand with Enbridge because we know we can do it here – better – in our backyard.
