Oppose Construction of the New Line 5 Pipeline

Calgary-based Enbridge, Inc. is seeking permits from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to reroute its Line 5 oil pipeline across nearly 200 waterways and 135 acres of wetlands in northern Wisconsin.

The proposed route is just upstream of Copper Falls State Park and poses a huge risk to the park and the rest of the Bad River watershed.

In the last 50 years, Line 5 has leaked 29 times, spilling more than a million gallons of oil into the environment! Re-routing Line 5 only exacerbates the enormous environmental and economic risks of the pipeline.

Construction of new Line 5 pipeline would deepen our dependence on harmful fossil fuels, threatens Treaty Rights, and puts some of Wisconsin’s most precious natural areas at risk.

Tell DNR to protect Wisconsin’s vital waterways and wetlands!

DNR is currently preparing an Environmental Impact Statement for the Line 5 reroute project, a process that includes a public comment period. Make your voice heard and submit a comment to DNR explaining your concerns about the Line 5 reroute! Even if you spoke at the Feb. 2 hearing, we encourage you to submit a written statement as well.
