Email News Alerts

Otter Tail County residents are starting to have their say on the Sandpiper Pipeline project.

The pipeline, proposed by Enbridge Energy, would transport crude oil from Tioga, N.D. to Superior, Wisc. via a 610-mile route across northern Minnesota.


Enbridge's preferred route travels from North Dakota to Clearbrook, Minn., then south to Park Rapids and east to Superior from there.
