Pipeline 61

Pipeline 61 runs under my #StCroixRiver and now carries 50 million gallons per day of heavy crude oil ! That’s not enough for #Embridge !
Not only has this Embridge Company been allowed to use “eminent domain” on our Wisconsinites private land!

NOW They have been talking about running a “twin” pipeline next to #Pipelineline61 it would be called #Pipeline66 and because it is a twin it would NOT be subject to the normal easement process. Embridge also wants to up the capacity of pipeline 61 to 1.2 million barrels

“sometimes don’t need any new easements at all,” said Rebecca Craven of the Pipeline Safety Trust.

The other three rivers are Eau Claire, Totogatic, and Namekagon rivers.

“When Line 61 was originally constructed, it transported about 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day. With the additional pump stations, the line now carries about 930,000 barrels per day, and by the end of 2017, Smith said it is anticipated the pipeline will transport 1.2 million barrels per day” Hub city.com
