The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has announced details on how to join upcoming webinars about Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline replacement project. On the day of each event, links to access the webinar will be available on the DNR Line 3 webpage, www.mndnr.gov/line3.
The links will be available 30 minutes before each webinar starts. The webinars will be held at 2:30 p.m. Monday, April 29; 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 30; and 3 p.m. Monday, May 6. The webinars will focus on the project, how people can comment on the company's applications and the DNR's decision-making process.
The first webinar on April 29 will provide an overview of the Line 3 replacement project and the DNR's role in regulating the project. Webinars 2 (April 30) and 3 (May 6) will focus in more detail on the 10 applications Enbridge has submitted to the DNR. The content of webinars 2 and 3 will be essentially the same.
Following an informational presentation, each webinar will include a 30-minute question-and-answer period. This will be an opportunity for participants to submit questions about the project, the applications and the DNR's review process. The DNR will not be taking public comments as part of the webinars. The DNR will answer as many questions as possible in the 30-minute period.
Minnesotans will be able to view the webinars using their own computers and other devices, or at one of three locations in northern Minnesota: Park Rapids, Clearbrook and Floodwood. Further details on these locations are provided at www.mndnr.gov/line3. Each webinar will be recorded and available later on the same webpage, where people can also sign up for automatic email updates.
