Tell the Army Corps of Engineers: Halt Enbridge's Line 5 pipeline
Enbridge's Line 5 pipeline tunnel poses unacceptable risks to Michigan's environmental integrity.
Every day, the pipeline shuttles 23 million gallons of Canadian crude oil and natural gas liquids from Superior, Wisconsin, to Sarnia, Ontario. Along that route, it passes vast stretches of crucial wetlands and waterways -- all of which are threatened by the oil that would be released by a pipeline spill. Researchers have demonstrated the danger posed by this pipeline. One researcher at the University of Michigan found that more than 700 miles of shoreline would be vulnerable if this pipeline spilled in Michigan's Straits of Mackinac.
This habitat is irreplaceable, and needs to be protected from the devastating consequences of a leak from this pipeline. That's why we're writing to urge the Army Corps of Engineers to halt this project.
