Hearing in Superior will focus on dock rebuilding
A Department of Natural Resources hearing today in Superior will focus on the impact of rehabbing a dock, but environmental groups say the risks of shipping tar sands oil ought to be discussed.
Elkhorn Industries is seeking a permit to rehab 700 feet of dock wall along the Superior harbor. Midwestern environmentalists, however, say the firm is also working on plans to use the stronger dock to load Great Lakes ships with tar sands oil being piped in from North Dakota or Canada.
