Oil spill in North Dakota is Keystone pipeline's second in 2 years

StarTribune 10/31/2019,  Mike Hughlett

"This week’s North Da­ko­ta leak would rank in the Top 10 larg­est U.S. on­shore oil spills since 2010. In that year, an En­bridge pipe­line rup­tured in south­west­ern Mich­i­gan, spill­ing 834,000 gal­lons of Ca­na­di­an crude. En­bridge’s last ma­jor spill in Min­ne­so­ta was in 2002 when Line 3 failed near Cohasset, re­leas­ing 252,000 gal­lons of oil."

Duluth News Tribune 10/17/2019,  Babette Sandman

"When we gathered in Giche-ode’ Akiing, we came together with our neighbors from Duluth and across the Great Lakes region to speak with one voice in favor of defending this place. We know we must protect our water now and for future generations."

Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan have decided to continue the state's legal challenge against the Line 3 tar sands pipeline, which would cross northern Minnesota.

This legal appeal was started by Gov. Dayton's Department of Commerce, based on the premise that the Public Utilities Commission approved the pipeline illegally.

 

The Walz administration filed for the  appeal.
