Special Dakota County Board Meeting Scheduled for Flint Hills Pipeline Project

The Dakota County Board of Commissioners has scheduled a special meeting pursuant to Minn. Stat. § 216G.05 for Monday, September 19, at 5 p.m. for the purpose of informing the public about a Flint Hills Resources pipeline project. The meeting will be held in the council chambers at Rosemount City Hall.


The project will involve the construction of a 1.6 mile pipeline carrying anhydrous ammonia from CF Industries to the southeast corner of Pine Bend Refinery in Rosemount, near the junction of U.S. 52 and State Highway 55. Anhydrous ammonia is a necessary component to producing ammonium thiosulfate (ATS), which is used in some agricultural fertilizer products. Flint Hills Resources anticipates that pipeline construction will start in 2022 and continue through the spring or summer of 2023. More information is available within this packet containing a map, notice, information book, and Public Utilities Commission (PUC) order, and here from the PUC.
