Army Corps of Engineers to decide on supports for pipeline
STRAITS OF MACKINAC - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to decide soon whether to allow new supports to be installed for an underwater oil pipeline in the Straits of Mackinac.

Pipeline operator Enbridge disclosed yesterday that erosion had opened a gap beneath one of their pipelines in the channel connecting Lakes Huron and Michigan.
The company says the pipe's integrity isn't threatened. Still, it wants to install more than 50 screw anchors for greater stability.

Michigan has granted a permit.

Enbridge says it's been waiting 16 months for the Army Corps to do likewise.
