The Tribe seeks comments on the proposed antidegradation decision related to the pipeline
maintenance work proposed by the Northern Natural Gas Company on its Marquette Line within the
Bad River Reservation. The proposed maintenance project includes work associated with temporary
excavation, access, and dewatering related to the viewing, and possible maintenance, of the pipeline at
a location (Site 56000005) west of where the right-of-way crosses Sugarbush Creek.
To minimize the potential loading that may occur during the implementation of the proposed project,
temporary erosion and sedimentation controls will be properly installed and maintained until soils are
stabilized. Additional best management practices (BMPs) will be implemented, including minimization
of the workspace, and accessing the site during frozen ground conditions. (Read More)
