On November 12, 2020, Governor Whitmer announced that the easement that permitted Enbridge Line 5 to operate on the bottomlands of the Great lakes has been revoked. This action came after an exhaustive study of the violations of the easement by Enbridge. Backed up with a lawsuit filed in court by Attorney General Nessel, this action started the six-month countdown to a shutdown on May 12, 2021. This time will allow an orderly transition for the minimal amount of product that Michigan does use to be replaced.

Mackinac Bridge Waiting for Line 5 Shutdown

Make no mistake - every day Line 5 continues to operate, it puts the Great Lakes at the unacceptable risk of a disastrous oil spill that could coat 700 miles of shoreline, destroy the drinking water for 20 million people, and destroy Michigan's blue economy.
