Enbridge, Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe create new agreement on Line 3 pipeline

LEECH LAKE, MN — A new agreement has been reached on the scope and process for removal and deactivation of the current Line 3 pipeline through the Leech Lake Reservation.

Enbridge Energy and the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe reached the agreement Thursday.

Company officials say the agreement allows for development of renewable energy projects and support for enhancing the emergency response capabilities of the Leech Lake Band.

In addition, Enbridge says the agreement was reached following a large amount of dialogue, recognizes community concerns, and respects the Band’s sovereignty.

Officials say talks will continue with the Band as both parties move forward with creating specific programs and projects, which are supported by the agreement.
