You might have heard about the construction of the new Enbridge Line 3 pipeline, but you may not have a handle on who is involved and how. One of the most important things to know is safety is a priority, and the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Office of Pipeline Safety (DPS-MNOPS) is an integral part of making sure this project is completed safely and correctly.

Our latest blog will give you a bit of background on the pipeline itself, and explain the critical role MNOPS plays in its proper construction.
