Chuck Kajer, Managing Editor

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) gave the go-ahead last week to the Minnesota Pipeline Company to build the 304-mile-long MinnCan pipeline through parts of central Minnesota, including a portion of southern Scott County.

The commission voted 4-0 in favor of the pipeline, saying the company had met the requirements of Minnesota rules including showing the need, complying with route selection criteria and completing a route environmental assessment.

The company had filed an application with the MPUC in January, 2006.
