Last June, the Minnesota Court of Appeals found that the "final" Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed Line 3 project was inadequate because it did not address the potential impacts of an oil spill on Lake Superior. The "revised final" EIS was released last week, and it's not good news for the St. Louis River Estuary: the same estuary that's seen the investment of millions of dollars and thousands of hours to repair habitats there.

Today's public comment opportunities run from 1:00pm to 4:00pm and from 6:00pm t0 9:00pm. You can submit your comments about the project online through January 6; more information about that process is here.
