Tell the Army Corps: Don't take any shortcuts on the proposed Line 5 pipeline reroute in Wisconsin!

WECAN  SC LINE 5 LAWN SIGN.jpg

The 70-year-old Line 5 crude oil pipeline stretches from Superior, Wisconsin, east through Michigan's Upper Peninsula and the Straits of Mackinac, on to Ontario, and it carries nearly 22 million gallons of oil each and every day. Along the way, the pipeline crosses critical waterways flowing into Lakes Superior, Michigan, and Huron that supply the drinking water for tens of millions of residents in the Great Lakes region.

Now Enbridge, the pipeline's operator, is seeking permission from the Army Corps of Engineers to reroute a portion of the pipeline around the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Reservation in Wisconsin. Approving this reroute would extend the lifespan of this already old and dangerous pipeline and extend the ongoing threat it poses to the Great Lakes.

Join the Sierra Club, the Women's Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN) and many others, in telling the Army Corps of Engineers it cannot take any shortcuts and must do the most thorough environmental review possible of the proposed reroute to protect our waterways, communities, and wildlife along the pipeline. Through this effort, we are calling for Line 5 permits to be rejected and the entire pipeline permanently shut down.
