New Enbridge pipeline leak found in northern Michigan
A company responsible for a 2010 pipeline rupture that spilled more than 800,000 gallons of oil in southern Michigan says it has discovered a small leak in an oil pipeline in the northern Lower Peninsula.
WOOD-TV reports that damage to the pipeline was discovered Tuesday in a section near the Arenac County community of Sterling. The pipeline runs through the eastern part of the state to the Upper Peninsula.
Calgary, Alberta-based Enbridge Inc. says crews found the leak after discovering oil in the soil. Enbridge says cleanup at the site about 95 miles northeast of Lansing was expected to be swift.
Meanwhile, cleanup efforts continue from the 2010 spill into the Kalamazoo River and Talmadge Creek near Marshall. That pipeline runs from Griffith, Ind., to Sarnia, Ontario.
