Two more communities send Gov. Snyder letters of concern

Two more Michigan communities – Cheboygan County and the city of Grand Rapids – have sent letters of concern about the State's role in regulating the aging oil pipelines in the Straits of Mackinac to Governor Snyder. 

The letters echo the Oil & Water Don’t Mix Campaign’s call for the governor to require Enbridge, which owns the oil pipelines in the Straits of Mackinac, to apply for permission to remain on state-owned Great Lakes bottomlands, as required under state law.

"The County encourages consideration of the State's responsibility under the Great Lakes Submerged Land Act to require Enbridge to submit application for permits to provide the best opportunity for public review and comment concerning pipeline improvements" - Linda Socha, Chairperson, Cheboygan County Board of Comissioners

Please contact us if you would like Oil & Water Don't Mix campaign information to share with your local community leaders.
