Take Action on Line 5 – Submit Your Comments by 8/4/24!
Summer Actions with the Art Collective you won’t want to miss!

Enbridge Energy’s Line 5 pipeline moves oil dangerously through northern Wisconsin every day illegally in trespass, violating the Bad River Band’s sovereignty. Now, Enbridge is trying to reroute and expand Line 5 and operate it for years to come, putting at risk the water, fish, plants and animals, humans, and so much more, with the threat of an oil spill.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is currently working on an Environmental Assessment of the proposed reroute and has established opportunities for public input. They held a public hearing in Ashland, WI, on June 4, and concerned citizens from across Wisconsin – and beyond – showed up to voice their impassioned opposition to the pipeline. We sincerely hope that the Army Corps will take their testimony to heart!

In the meantime, we still have an opportunity to make our voices heard: The Army Corps will accept written comments through Saturday, August 4. You can submit yours here.

WHAT: Public Comment Period on Line 5 Reroute
WHEN: Now through August 4, 2024
WHERE TO SUBMIT: tinyurl.com/L5RCOMMENT
GUIDANCE: tinyurl.com/LINE5GUIDE
USACE DRAFT EA:

There is no limit with written remarks, so you can get as detailed as possible. The most effective statements include your personal experience or knowledge — start with at least a sentence or two about why you care about this issue. Even if you testified at the hearing, you should send in a written comment as well!

If you’re feeling stuck in the process, need help with talking points, or are just looking for general support as you get your thoughts on paper, feel free to virtually drop in and chat with Britnie, our Fossil Fuel Organizer, on Wednesdays from 2:00 to 3:00 pm CT through the end of July. Register here for comment support:

If you’re concerned about climate, land and water, treaty rights, and corporate overreach, please take this opportunity to make your views on the Line 5 pipeline known to the USACE and the entire Biden administration.
