Friends of the Headwaters Taking the PUC to the Court of Appeals

Last time Friends of the Headwaters (FOH) was in the Court of Appeals, they won the first Environmental Impact Statement ever done on an oil pipeline in Minnesota. That was during 2014 and 2015. Now this small group of volunteers from northern Minnesota is in court again, challenging both the adequacy of the Line 3 EIS and the Public Utilities Commission’s conditional approval of Line 3.

Richard Smith, Friends of the Headwaters’ president, contends that the PUC should have heeded the recommendations of the Administrative Law Judge and Minnesota’s lead environmental agencies. “Even the Department of Commerce determined that Enbridge’s Line 3 was unnecessary, “ he said. “The Department of Commerce was the agency the PUC relied on to examine the Enbridge application in depth, and the DOC said a new Line 3 was not needed.

The PUC’s decision was contrary to the law, and we are confident that is what the court of appeals will conclude.”
