Enbridge asserts its Line 5 oil pipelines are a critical piece of energy infrastructure for Michigan residents, and has proposed boring a tunnel beneath the Straits of Mackinac to continue transporting crude oil and natural gas. But before issuing a permit, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (US ACE) must administer an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). If conducted properly, this could effectively halt Enbridge's plans to continue transporting oil through the Great Lakes.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is holding three public hearings to accept comments on their proposed scope for the Environmental Impact Statement. Join us in St. Ignace for the second event and only in-person opportunity, and come prepared with your take on our suggested talking points!
