GRAND RAPIDS, Minn. (AP) - Landowners and tribal groups want Enbridge Energy to remove its old pipeline because of concerns of potential pollution if it wins regulatory approval for a replacement line across northern Minnesota. Minnesota Public Radio reports that Enbridge plans to remove the old Line 3 in portions where it's exposed, but argues that safely removing the full line could be difficult in several locations because of nearby operating lines. Removing the full pipeline would cost more than $1.2 billion.
