DAPL Corporation Furious After New Pipeline Permit REJECTED - Counter Current News


DAPL Corporation Furious After New Pipeline Permit REJECTED - Counter Current News: “The request was loud and clear that there should be no blank check for Enbridge and those voices were heard,” said Liz Kirkwood, Executive Director of FLOW. “Now the state should investigate Enbridge’s violations and do a comprehensive review of impacts and alternatives Line 5 under rule of law and conduct a public hearing so all of the facts are out in the open.”

The article says, “The agency’s choice to defer a decision about the permits follows thousands of comments from citizens who objected to the request absent an investigation into Enbridge’s violations of a 1953 easement agreement with the state.

Installation of four other supports that Enbridge failed to maintain in violation of its easement were approved by the MDEQ.”
