Shut It Down!

While Embridge keeps enacting a full-press to pressure our state government to keep its Line 5 oil pipeline operating in the Straits of Mackinac, we learn this nugget courtesy of The Detroit News‘ Beth LeBlanc:

An unsupported span of Enbridge Energy’s Line 5 oil pipeline beneath the Straits of Mackinac has grown to 81 feet, surpassing the 75-foot limit outlined in the company’s easement agreement with the state.

Enbridge notified the state of the development Wednesday and said it applied for approvals to place screw anchors or supports along that segment of the pipeline in March 2018 but is still waiting on an answer for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Canadian company said it already has received state permits for the work from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy.

This is important, as LeBlanc explains:

Exposed sections of the Line 5 oil pipeline that don’t lie on the lake bed are required to have supports or screw anchors attached to them at least every 75 feet. The areas needing support change from year to year as soil washes away or erodes.  

Under the easement agreement, Enbridge has a 90-day window to address the issue.

This isn’t the first time Enbridge has violated the easement as a state report showed the Canadian oil company failed to address a “number of coating gaps found along the” pipeline back in 2017.

Michigan’s awesome AG Dana Nessell is pushing to shut Line 5 down. LeBlanc reports:

The news from Enbridge “reinforces the need to decommission Line 5 as quickly as possible,” Attorney General Dana Nessel’s spokeswoman Kelly Rossman-McKinney said.

Nessell is already suing Enbridge for violating its easement in her effort to shutdown the old and dangerous pipeline.

Let’s all be thankful we’ve got the best AG in the country!
