Work begins on pipeline to Lake Superior

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Work begins this week on a pipeline that will bring water from Lake Superior to the Lutsen Mountains ski area.

The project will replace a controversial pipeline from the Poplar River, a designated trout stream. The resort's co-owner, Charles Skinner, says they've used water from the river to make snow since the 1960s.

The new $5 million pipeline will provide water used in snowmaking at the resort and will send water to the Superior National Golf Course and nearby vacation homes.

Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/1dajQRy ) says the state awarded a $3.6 million grant to pay for most of the pipeline, with the rest coming from local partners.
