Another huge step forward in the work to shut down Enbridge's dangerous Line 5 pipeline was taken this week, as the Acting Army assistant secretary announced their decision to require the US Army Corp to conduct an environmental impact survey (EIS) on Enbridge's proposed tunnel around Line 5.

This victory was thanks to the tireless work of organizations like Oil and Water Don't Mix and countless concerned Michiganders keeping the pressure on both federal and local government to protect our climate and shut down Line 5. While much work remains ahead of us in this fight, we applaud this step in the right direction.
