Convener: The Pipeline Work Group is convened by Jim Reents, Founder of the Alliance.
Topics of Interest: This Work Group is currently focused on the new Energy Corridor created by the Enbridge Corporation’s proposed ‘Sandpiper Pipeline’ and the ‘Replacement of Line 3’ across the sensitive natural resources of Northern Minnesota. Issues of concern are: proposed routes; threats to the economy; Treaty issues; rail issues; process/procedures of the Department of Commerce (DOC) and Public Utilities Commission (PUC).
Current Action: See Urgent Action Needed below for sample letters to those in a
position to support a thorough Environmental Impact Statement and better pipeline route.
Meetings of this Work Group will begin Spring 2016.
