Take Action: Fight for the Great Lakes Now

The safety and security of the Great Lakes is at risk, and Schuette has not taken action to shut down Line 5. He needs to hear from people across Michigan!

Shut Down Line 5 and Protect the Great Lakes

  • Approximately 23 million gallons of oil and natural gas liquids flow daily through Enbridge’s “Line 5,” a pair of antiquated 64-year-old pipelines just west of the Mackinac Bridge. It threatens the drinking water supply for 5 million Michigan residents.
  • Despite all of his stated concern about the pipeline, to date, Schuette has taken no concrete action to shut it down. As Michigan’s Chief Legal Officer, Schuette has full and independent authority to revoke the easement giving Enbridge permission to have the twin pipelines lay on publicly-owned lake bottomlands.
  • A 2010 pipeline rupture by Enbridge — the largest inland oil spill in U.S. history — resulted in more than 800,000 gallons of oil dumping into the Kalamazoo River watershed.

Line 5 would never be built under the Straits of Mackinac today, and its future “days are numbered”

-Attorney General Bill Schuette, July 2015
