Line 5 Straits of Mackinac Pipeline

There are right and wrong places for oil transportation. In the Great Lakes, 540,000 barrels of oil run through line 5 pipeline along the bottom of the Straits of Mackinac each day through a 63- year-old pipeline designed for a 50-year lifespan. This pipeline poses an urgent and immediate risk of failure, which would cause an unprecedented disaster to Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, and the economies and ecosystems which depend upon them, for decades to come.
