Enbridge Receives Approval to Install Additional Supports to Line 5

On Tuesday, September 24th, Enbridge announced that it had received a permit from the United States Army Corps of Engineers to install additional anchor support for  Line 5. In early August of 2018, Enbridge notified officials that a stretch of lakebed had washed away, leaving a portion of the pipeline unsupported. With the approval, Enbridge can now begin to install 54  steel supports to the pipeline, as erosion created a gap between the lake bottom and the pipe. Since 2002, Enbridge has installed 147 anchor supports on the Line 5' through the Straits.
