Enbridge is proposing to abandon part of the old route for Pipeline 3 and move it into our watershed, just upstream from our lakes.  They also plan to increase the size of the pipeline to 36 inches diameter.  Public comments about the need for this pipeline and the route are invited by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.
