Tell the Army Corps of Engineers to stop this pipeline plan in its tracks
Docket ID: DoD--2022--HA--0100
I strongly urge you to reject the proposal for the construction of a new tunnel under the Straits of Mackinac to house Enbridge's Line 5 oil pipeline.
Oil pipelines, with their leaks, spills and other disastrous environmental consequences, have no place near our iconic Great Lakes. Line 5 already poses a threat to the region and its natural wonders -- we don't need another, deeper pipeline adding fuel to the fire.
Environmental impact statements are meant to determine what the potential consequences of a given industrial project may be, whether it is "contrary to the overall public interest." This new proposal will have serious environmental consequences, and the threats it poses to our Great Lakes are certainly contrary to the public interest. Please stop this project from moving any further.
