Wisconsin DNR Dismisses Application For Potential Oil Loading Dock In Superior

Wisconsin DNR
Wisconsin DNR

MADISON, WI (KDAL) - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has dismissed an application by Elkhorn Industries for loading dock rehabilitation in Superior that would facilitate the possible shipments of tar sands crude oil across the Great Lakes.  Saying more information is needed concerning plans for the proposed site, the DNR says the company can re-apply for the permit at a future date following a comprehensive environmental assessment.  The Alliance for the Great Lakes, which issued a report exploring the potential harm of shipping that form of crude on the Great Lakes, says the decision will give the region more time for a bi-national discussion about such plans.
