36 Legislators call out flaws in the draft Environmental Impact Statement for Enbridge Line 3

36 Legislators formally commented on the draft EIS for Enbridge Line 3 and asked for a “vastly revised EIS.” Legislators identified and analyzed the deficiencies in four areas.

One. “The DEIS does not analyze the potential harm of a spill to the million plus Minnesotans who drink Mississippi River water” and fails to “address risk to warmwater streams.”

Two. The DEIS “fails to adequately address…key concerns of Indigenous communities.”

Three. The DEIS fails to directly address or incorporate Minnesota’s goals and policies regarding climate change.

Four. The DEIS does not comprehensively analyze a no-build alternative.
