Sandpiper Pipeline

A crude petroleum pipeline is being proposed over a route that would run from west to east on a corridor that would be very close to the north end of Roosevelt Lake and within the watershed.   North Dakota Pipeline Company LLC (NDPC) is proposing to develop a new crude oil pipeline and associated facilities known as the Sandpiper Project to increase crude oil transportation services from North Dakota to refineries in the the U.S. Midwest and eastern Canada. The Sandpiper Project route would extend from NDPC's Beaver Lodge Station south of Tioga, North Dakota to the Superior Terminal in Superior, Wisconsin.

A copy of the application may be viewed online and is located here:

Prior to any construction of the proposed facilities, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (MPUC or Commission) must grant a Certificate of Need (CN) and a Route Permit for the Project.  There is currently an open comment period for this project. Comments will be accepted from:January 31, 2014 through April 4, 2014.  Comments can be made online using the following link:

A public informational meeting will be held on March 12, 2014 from 6pm to 9pm at the Pine River - Backus High School, 1000 First Street North in Pine River.

A position paper (presumably intended to be filed as a comment) has been prepared by Ronald Vegemast of Outing, MN.  A copy is linked here
