Enbridge to pay $11M
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and Department of Natural Resources ordered Enbridge to pay $11 million following aquifer breaches during construction of Line 3 last year.
Because of a breach on the Fond du Lac Reservation, the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa will receive $1.45 million of the $11 million.
"Today we assert our sovereignty through this enforcement action and demonstrate that the FDL Band will hold accountable any actors that violate our strong environmental standards," Fond du Lac Band Chairperson Kevin Dupuis said in a news release.

The Carlton-Wrenshall Raptors will soon co-op in all sports, though the timing is still up for debate.
