EPA denies Enbridge request for extension or dredging order

Response acknowledges that work is unlikely to be done by end of year deadline
A request by Enbridge Inc. for a 10-month extension on its dredging order has been denied by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In a letter to Rich Adams, the company's vice president of operations, the federal agency said Enbridge failed to "prepare adequate contingency plans" despite knowing there was strong opposition from residents and business owners near one of its proposed dredge pad sites.
