Protect Great Lakes Wildlife from an Oil Spill:
President Biden Support the Orderly Shutdown of Line 5

Lying beneath the surface of the Great Lakes, the Line 5 pipeline threatens our Great Lakes, our water, our communities, and our way of life.

Enbridge’s Line 5 has a long history of violations, continues to be damaged by anchors and carries up to 23 million gallons of oil and natural gas liquids through the Straits of Mackinac each day. A large oil spill would have a devastating impact on shoreline habitat, endangered species like the piping plover, and the Great Lakes tourism and outdoor recreation economy. Michigan’s Governor, Gretchen Whitmer, has terminated Enbridge’s easement to operate Line 5 in the Straits to protect our Great Lakes, but Enbridge continues to operate this 70-year-old pipeline illegally.

Call on President Biden to support Michigan’s right and duty to protect the Great Lakes.
