The OWDM Campaign sent a letter to Governor Snyder and Attorney General Schuette asking them to respond to the Kiefner & Associates report that Enbridge ignored required minimum spans on the Line 5 pipeline with willful disregard.
From the letter:
"These intentional failures to comply with anchor requirements and adequately maintain the Line 5 pipelines in compliance with the easement agreement reflects a corporate pattern and practice that rises to gross negligence. The failures documented in the Kiefner report and in previous reports by Enbridge and Dr. Ed Timm with respect to missing pipeline coatings and water currents contribute to mounting evidence that the transport of crude oil through this pipeline infrastructure endangers and is likely to impair, harm or pollute the Great Lakes, its ecosystem, public and private property, and public health and safety."
