Pipeline to pass through Calhoun, Kalamazoo, Saint Joseph, Cass and Berrien Counties
LANSING, MI - Enbridge Energy received state regulatory approval to replace about 160 miles of its crude oil and petroleum pipeline through 10 counties in Michigan. The company says the project is necessary to increase capacity and address the long-term integrity of the 6B pipeline, which ruptured near Marshall in July 2010, spilling more than 800,000 gallons of heavy crude into Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River.
