Judge: Pipeline can operate on reservation amid reroute work

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A federal judge will allow an oil and gas pipeline to continue to flow on a northern Wisconsin American Indian reservation while its operators work to reroute the line around the tribal land.

The Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa sued Enbridge in 2019 demanding it remove the section of line that runs across the tribe’s reservation in Ashland County. The tribe is concerned the pipeline could rupture and contaminate its drinking water.

Enbridge has been working on a 40-mile reroute around the reservation...


Ken Notes: This will be interesting, like the line under the straights in Michigan, the line, in serious need of repair, may remain operational for a long time. I wish we could sit down and get them upgraded or replaced ASAP. I can see it not when a failure occurs everyone will be blaming everyone else.
