Pipelines: Our Work
A Glimpse of Our Work in 2016
As we see continued growth in oil production in North America, there will be more and more pressure to transport oil across Great Lakes waters and the State of Michigan. No method of transporting petroleum products can ever be completely safe and transporting greater volumes of oil will only serve to increase the risk to the Great Lakes ecosystem. We are working toward a day when no crude oil is transported in, on, or under the Great Lakes. Until that day comes, the Watershed Council will continue to work on a variety of fronts, including prevention measures, emergency response preparedness, education and outreach, and policy changes.
