Topic: Enbridge Pipeline 5

Speaker:  Estaban Chiriboga: environmental specialist from the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission.

The Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission, which represents 11 Ojibwe tribes, told the DNR in a Dec. 10 letter that the state’s review has significant gaps in information.  An intertribal agency says the state’s draft environmental review of a Canadian firm’s $450 million plan to reroute an oil and gas pipeline across northern Wisconsin is still expected to cross nearly 200 waterbodies and temporarily affect 135 acres of wetlands.  What does that mean for the Great Lakes and WI?

Action suggested:  Contact the DNR about Enbridge Pipeline 5 until April 15, which is the extended date for public comment.
