Enbridge wants the federal government to rubber-stamp a Clean Water Act permit that would allow the Canadian company to dump up to 5 million gallons of wastewater a day into the Great Lakes during tunnel construction.
They believe we should ignore the danger of oil pipelines and a dangerously flawed plan to build an underground tunnel in the Straits of Mackinac.
Burying the problem of oil pipelines in a tunnel in the Great Lakes doesn’t make it go away. What's more, every day the oil does make its way to refineries and burned as gasoline and propane it spills carbon into the atmosphere, making everything worse.

Join citizens groups and Native American tribes across Michigan in demanding the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) reject a fast-track federal permit for Enbridge’s Line 5 oil tunnel.
Allowing Enbridge to massively pollute Lake Michigan with 5M gallons of drilling wastewater every day for years shouldn’t be allowed.
NOTE: Despite Gov. Whitmer's order and a lawsuit to decommission Line 5, this tunnel permit process is still moving forward. This is a dangerous tunnel that needs to be stopped - submit your comment now!
