DNR nixes pier repairs for Great Lakes oil terminal in Superior

Email

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has, at least for now, turned down a permit application for repairs to a Superior harbor pier that’s planned for a possible oil terminal.

Superior-based Elkhorn Industries wants to rehabilitate the harborfront pier to make it usable again for Great Lakes vessels, including a possible terminal for a new Calumet Oil facility to fill tankers and barges with crude oil for shipping to eastern oil refineries.
