They will just patch this one like they have with all of the others and say that its fixed and then 1 to 20 years down the road the lines burst again. So much for hey just rip out the old pipelines that have been there for 40 to 50 years and just replace them with new ones. Oh wait that makes to much sense and costs too much money up front, instead of the fines on top of fines and clean up money that it will cost over next 1 to 20 years. Yup just like the rest of this country we just patch it and hope that the duct tape holds until we can spend millions on top of millions of dollars on a bright idea that would actually work.(which won't take much just replace it plain and simple.) MORONS!!!

These companies push these pipelines way beyond there design capability and when they blow the taxpayers pay the consequence.

Actually, they are not just patching pipelines, they are building new ones. They just built a new crude oil that crossed northern Minnesota to Superior and at the same time they added a natural gas pipeling on the same right-of-way.
