Fire Set at Crystal Falls in 1999

Make a phone call on this Day of Action

Today marks the 17th Anniversary of the Largest Spill to date in Line 5's history, which occurred in Crystal Falls, MI on November 2nd, 1999. The spill dumped 226,000 gallons of crude and natural gas liquids into a marsh in Michigan's upper peninsula. After nearby residents were evacuated, Enbridge officials ignited a resulting vapor cloud to prevent it from spreading, which sparked a raging fire that burned for 36 hours and scorched eight acres of land.

Let's make sure this never happens again. On this day of action, call Attorney General Schuette's office and then report your call below.

Here's the phone number: 517-373-1110

    I called on Saturday and didn’t even get a voicemail. Very disappointed as this was the only day I had any time to call.

    A Michigan resident all my life. I LOVE vacationing in Michigan, especially along the Great Lakes. All time favorite is the Mackinaw area. Line 5 needs to be shut down. It is a accident waiting for a place to happen. Glad to call the Attorney General’s office today.
