HEALTH RISK OF TAR SANDS OIL SPILL
The proposed Enbridge Energy pipeline Line 61 expansion carries significant risks to the environment and health of the people of Wisconsin. This hidden pipeline crosses the state of Wisconsin diagonally carrying Canadian tar sands from Superior, WI to Flanagan, IL. Enbridge, a Canadian pipeline company, proposes to expand the pipeline to triple the capacity from 400,000 to 1.2 million barrels per day. New pumping stations will be built to increase the flow rate, which is 45% more oil than the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.See the complete article on our News page
