Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer ordered fossil fuel company Enbridge to shut down its dangerous Line 5 oil pipeline, which runs beneath the Straits of Mackinac in the Great Lakes, by May 12. Whitmer issued the order after she terminated the pipeline’s 1953 easement.
Enbridge is refusing to comply and continues to operate the pipeline. If it spills, Line 5 could contaminate the world’s largest source of fresh surface water. The Army Corps of Engineers announced on June 23 that it would perform an environmental impact statement on Line 5.
Earthjustice, in partnership with the Native American Rights Fund, represents the Bay Mills Indian Community in the Tribe’s fight against Line 5 to protect the Straits and the Tribe’s treaty rights throughout waters in Michigan.
