Story By Newswatch 12 Team

ASHLAND AND IRON COUNTIES - Enbridge Energy wants to do environmental surveys in two northern counties as it looks into re-routing a pipeline that now crosses tribal land.

The company wants to look at a 40-mile stretch of land in Ashland and Iron counties.

It could replace an existing 20-mile segment of pipeline that runs through the Bad River reservation.

Tribal members sued Enbridge in July. They want to force Enbridge to remove sections of the pipeline that run through the reservation over concerns the aging line could rupture.
