Michigan wants Enbridge to pledge funds in case of oil spill
The twin pipes run along the bottom of the 4-mile-long (6.4-kilometer-wide) Straits of Mackinac, which connects Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. They make up one segment of Enbridge's Line 5, which carries oil and liquids used in propane between Superior, Wisconsin, and Sarnia, Ontario. The agreement with Snyder included a pledge to hold the state financially harmless for any damages from a Line 5 spill. But the deal was signed by Enbridge Energy Company Inc., a subsidiary of Enbridge Inc., which is based in Calgary, Alberta. In his letter to the parent company, Eichenger said Enbridge Energy doesn't have the resources to cover costs of a major spill.
Violations persist at Detroit River seawall collapse site
