Oil under the Mackinac Bridge: Protest planned this weekend over Enbridge pipeline

Oil under the Mackinac Bridge Protest planned this weekend over Enbridge pipeline

A protest is planned this weekend to raise awareness of an oil pipeline that runs under Michigan’s Mackinac Bridge.

Representatives of nearly a dozen organizations will gather in St. Ignace on Sunday to rally against the pipeline operated by Enbridge Energy, the Canadian company responsible for the 2010 oil spill in the Kalamazoo River.

The goal of the rally is to let people know there is a pipeline in the area and also what impact a potential spill could have on the area around the straits, said Beth Wallace of the National Wildlife Federation’s Great Lakes Regional Center.

“It’s is a disaster waiting to happen,” said Wallace. “If any spill comparable to what happened in Marshall happens in the Upper Peninsula, it would most definitely make its way to one of the Great Lakes.”

While environmental groups say the pipeline poses a risk to the area, Enbridge said the pipeline has been operating safely and is continuing to be monitored. The pipeline has been there since 1953.
