Sandpiper hearing does little to clear up pipeline's future


The proposed Sandpiper oil pipeline project got more complex Thursday, Aug. 7, as the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission approved moving forward with both the original and an alternative pipeline route.

The original route proposed by Canada-based Enbridge would run from near Tioga in northwest North Dakota to just south of Grand Forks, N.D., then cross the Red River to an existing terminal in Clearbrook, Minn., on its way to Superior, Wis., going through part of Cass County.
