ISG worked with government agencies to ensure that a new crude oil pipeline did not impact local wetlands.
Koch Pipeline Company, LP, needed environmental compliance services for its MinnCan project, a 303.5-mile, 24-inch diameter crude oil pipeline.
Extending through 13 Minnesota counties, the MinnCan Pipeline carries crude oil along its 24-inch diameter, 303.6-mile-long pipeline. This pipeline transports Canadian crude oil to the Twin Cities and required environmental compliance services to ensure its operation did not disrupt the local environment. ISG coordinated and oversaw subcontractors on the project and created a work plan that kept the project on time and under budget. The team also developed a monitoring plan in compliance with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that outlined an approach to wetland monitoring and field study protocol. ISG prepared a restoration assessment of wetlands and water bodies impacted by the project, as well as a wetland monitoring report that provided as-built documentation of soil surface elevation for pipeline alignment and the mitigation site.
