Public meeting to be held July 22 in Fifty Lakes regarding Enbridge Sandpiper Pipeline project
The Whitefsh Area Property Owners Association (WAPOA) wants to inform and educate all lake groups about the impacts of the pipeline that is proposed to go through the North Central Lake Region of Minnesota and the alternate routes proposed by groups like Friends of the Headwaters (FOH).
WAPOA has invited Richard Smith, FOH President, a local environmental group in Hubbard County opposed to the location of the proposed Enbridge Sandpiper Pipeline through our lake country in Hubbard, Cass and northern Crow Wing Counties to speak about the proposal. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 22 at 4 pm at the Fifty Lakes Foundation Clubhouse, Fifty Lakes.
FOH has studied this matter extensively with good science and needs the support of other lake groups/associations and their proposal(s) for alternate routes for the Sandpiper Pipeline. The Hubbard County COLA are active in supporting FOH and the alternate route plans presented. WAPOA is taking this opportunity to coordinate and encourage other COLAs, LARAs and lake associations in our area and along the Enbridge route to hear the FOH alternate route proposal(s) and support the efforts of FOH.
