Washington – Congressman Jack Bergman, member of the House Natural Resources Committee, issued the following statement: 

“Today I spoke with Governor Snyder about the recent information pertaining to the damaged protective coating on Pipeline 5 in the Straits of Mackinac. For well over a year now I have been calling for full transparency from Enbridge on the safety of this pipeline, and it is very disturbing to learn they have known about the damage to the protective coating since 2014. While this does not pose an immediate threat to the safety of the line, I am troubled that Enbridge would willingly hide this from the public.

“I fully support Governor Snyder’s continued efforts to hold Enbridge accountable and ensure the safety of Pipeline 5. Failure to do so puts the Great Lakes and our abundant natural resources at risk.”
