Hearing today on Sandpiper pipeline

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The route for the controversial Sandpiper oil pipeline will be discussed today at a hearing before the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The route for the controversial Sandpiper oil pipeline will be discussed today at a hearing before the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.
The Enbridge pipeline project would transport oil from near Tioga in western North Dakota more than 600 miles to an Enbridge terminal in Superior, Wis.
The project has been met with some resistance in northern Minnesota by groups such as Honor the Earth and Friends of the Headwaters.
The groups have been among those to propose alternatives to the route preferred by Enbridge.
The PUC is expected to determine which of the more than 50 alternative routes will continue to be considered.
Those alternatives will be considered today. The Sandpiper portion of the meeting is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. CDT, with more than 20 speakers signed up for the public comment period. Enbridge also will make its case for its preferred route.
