(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.

Enbrige would pay residents living 1,000 feet from the most affected areas between $250 and $750 per parcel.

The estimate is included in new documents filed with the federal Securities and Exchange Commission.
