Michigan pipeline to reopen


LANSING, Mich. (WKOW) -- The pipeline that was shut down in southern Michigan for two months after an oil spill is restarting.

Enbridge Inc. say the gradual restart of the pipeline running between Griffith, Indiana and Sarnia, Ontario is now underway. The pipeline was shut down July 26 after the company reported a massive oil leak.  An estimated 820,000 to 1 million gallons that spilled near Marshall, polluted the Kalamazoo Rover.

Enbridge received written permission from federal regulators to slowly resume operations on the pipeline.  The pipeline will restart at a lower pressure than previously and with increased monitoring.
