MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Department of Natural Resources is planning to hold a pair of public hearings on Enbridge Energy Partner's plans to build a crude oil pipeline from North Dakota to Superior.

The proposed Sandpiper project calls for building a new 30-inch diameter pipeline from North Dakota's Bakken Shale region through Minnesota to Superior. The project also includes replacing an existing pipeline known as Line 3. Both pipelines would cross about 14 miles of land in the town, village and city of Superior to the company's terminal in the city.

The DNR has scheduled two public hearings on the project's draft environmental impact statement on March 10 at the Superior Public Library. The first hearing is set to begin at 4:30 p.m. The second will start at 6:30 p.m.
