What happens if the Line 3 Project leaks oil into Lake Superior?

The Nature Conservancy

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.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
