6 Weeks into the Year: Enbridge Spills are Popping up all over the news

The New Year isn’t off to a good start for Enbridge.  The news is filled pipeline spills and other concerns.  Unfortunately, Enbridge pipelines are a steady part of these stories.  Since January 1, a pipeline jointly owned by Enbridge spilled over 15,000 barrels of crude oil in Texas due to a Department of Transportation subcontractor drove a bulldozer into the pipeline,  over 15,000 gallons of light oil spilled in Missouri is still being cleaned up a month later,  over 50,000 gallons of crude oil leaked in Saskatchewan from a pipeline that was purchased from Enbridge last year, and 200,000 liters of oil condensate spilled from Line 2 (one of the pipelines that brings oil into Superior) in Alberta.

Enbridge in the News around Wisconsin

The media coverage continues as well.  In mid- January, the Journal Sentinel released an in-depth, five-part series on Enbridge’s pipeline system.  A daily update was printed for a week, and the whole thing is published online here.  The series was printed in many newspapers around the state.

Kevin Stoddard, landowner in Columbia County, spoke in front of a County Board meeting, sparking this in-depth, local look in the Portage Daily Register.
