    Charlie Carpenter

    LWV-OA Program Committee


    Oil and Water Don’t Mix

    Tuesday, April 2, 7:00 to 8:30 PM

    Bloomfield Township Public Library

    1099 Lone Pine Rd (at Telegraph Rd), Bloomfield Township


    The League of Women Voters – Oakland Area will host Sean McBrearty, Coordinator, Oil and Water Don’t Mix. The event will be held at the Bloomfield Township Library Auditorium from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.


    Sean will speak about environmental concerns relating to the Enbridge Oil Company Line 5, the 655-mile-long pipeline which carries synthetic crude oil through Michigan. Of special concern is the damaged pipeline which has been submerged in the Straits of Mackinac since 1953 and is still in use today.


    Sean will also update the audience about the status of Governor Whitmer’s January 2, 2019 directive to Attorney General Nessel to investigate legislation passed during the lame duck session following the November election. The Governor’s directive authorizes investigation into whether the legislation, which approved construction of a Line 5 Tunnel under the Straits, complies with the state constitution.


    Finally, Sean will talk with the group about newly created volunteer opportunities with Clean Water Action in Oakland County.
