Enbridge in Michigan
For more than six decades, our employees and contractors have lived and worked in communities throughout Michigan as colleagues, neighbors, and friends. As a company, Enbridge is firmly committed to strengthening our communities by investing in initiatives that promote health, safety, social and educational enrichment, and environmental stewardship; and we also seek ways for our employees to get involved and volunteer with community organizations.
Throughout our long association with Michigan and its people, we've had our ups and downs – and one of our toughest moments, as a company, came on July 26, 2010 when Enbridge experienced the most serious environmental incident in the company’s history: the release of approximately 20,000 barrels of crude oil from our Line 6B pipeline near Marshall, Michigan. This leak resulted in large environmental impacts along Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River.
As a result, Enbridge’s spills performance and pipeline integrity are under a lot of scrutiny. We have used this experience to further strengthen our company and improve our track record of being one of the safest pipeline operators. To that end, Enbridge has made many improvements and we will continue to work hard to demonstrate to our neighbors that we will always live up to our core values of integrity, safety and respect.
