    Enbridge pipelines leaked in Michigan in 2010:

    Excerpt (+photo with caption) from article titled “Enbridge agrees to spend $172 million for 2010 Michigan spill” by Bloomberg on July 20, 2016:

    “Enbridge Inc. will spend $172 million paying fines and boosting safety across its pipeline operations in a deal with the Justice Department resolving Clean Water Act violations connected to its 2010 oil spill near Marshall, Mich.

    “The settlement agreement announced Wednesday resolves the biggest lingering legal question over the failure of Enbridge’s Line 6B, which sent more than 20,000 barrels of oil gushing into a Kalamazoo River tributary when it ruptured six years ago. The incident became one of the largest inland spills in U.S. history and stoked concerns about the safety of pipelines moving heavy Canadian crude across the border.

    “Under the settlement, Enbridge agreed to pay $62 million for violating the Clean Water Act, the largest fine for a pipeline spill ever under that law. The company also will spend at least $110 million taking steps to improve operations and prevent spills across its Lakehead pipeline system spanning 2,000 miles near the Great Lakes. Enbridge is required under the deal to replace nearly 300 miles of one of the pipelines.”
    (“A worker lifts oil-covered debris from the Kalamazoo River in Battle Creek, Mich. in July 2010, a day after 840,000 gallons of oil leaked into a creek that feedsinto the river. The oil leaked Monday from a 30-inch pipeline that carries about 8 million gallons of oil per day.” )
