Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline has faced controversy over the past year, as more and more gaps in the underwater line’s coating have been discovered. Should the 60-year-old liquids pipeline be retired?


Answers Votes
Yes. Its age and condition issues mean it’s too risky to keep operating under the Straits of Mackinac. 51%
No. It’s never had a leak, and recently passed a hydrotest; there’s no reason to shut down a pipeline that’s still completely operational. 31%
Other (please explain in the comments section). 14%

The line section under the Straits could be taken out of service, product removed and then be cleaned and internally coated. At just under 5 miles in length it could be back in service within 30 to 45 days. There are a couple of companies here in the US that could do the project.
