Enbridge Energy

"Lansing - Michigan officials said Tuesday the days of letting pipelines operate under the Straits of Mackinac are numbered, but there is no immediate reason to shut them down. Attorney General Bill Schuette admitted during a Tuesday press conference that the state today would not allow the two pipelines that Enbridge Energy has operated for nearly 60 years to be built."

A case related to the 2010 Kalamazoo River oil spill is heading back to Calhoun County Circuit Court.

The Michigan Court of Appeals sent the case back to the lower court Thursday. It says a trial should decide a resident's claim that health problems were caused by the disaster.


(MPRN-Lansing) The Sierra Club is suing the federal government to get an order for an environmental risk study of an oil pipeline that runs through some sensitive areas. 


The Sierra Club says a small leak in the Straits of Mackinac should be a "wake up call" about pipeline safety in Michigan and the Great Lakes.
