WatchtheLineMN is a coalition of organizations and individuals opposed to the Enbridge Line 3 crude oil pipeline and committed to preserving northern Minnesota’s clean waters and lands, including the Headwaters Region. Now that the project has gotten all of the required permits, we plan to lawfully monitor its construction and report on any suspected environmental violations.
Our work builds on similar efforts in other states. Volunteers in Iowa organized to monitor construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline. North Carolina Pipeline Watch was created to monitor a 200-mile stretch of the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a fracked gas pipeline that would cross several states.
