We, the undersigned, are landowners near the existing Enbridge Mainline pipeline corridor in Northern Minnesota. We are deeply concerned about the consequences of Enbridge’s proposal to abandon its existing Line 3 pipeline in place. If Enbridge shuts down Line 3, we believe they have a legal, financial, and moral responsibility to address any potential liability that the decommissioned pipeline would pose for us as landowners. We call on the State of Minnesota to oversee the pipeline abandonment process to ensure that financial liability is not passed on to our children and grandchilren. Enbridge should be required to survey the corridor for contamination, remove and remediate any contaminated soil or water, and consult with landowners to determine which sections of pipe should be removed, and which are better left in place. That decision should be ours. This land is our home and we have a responsibility to protect it.
