Enbridge Energy ready to restart pipeline

Today, Enbridge Energy will start pumping oil through its infamous pipeline 6B. The pipeline that spilled 800,000 gallons of crude into Talmadge Creek on July 25th. The pipeline that Enbridge didn't realize was leaking for over 24 hours. The pipeline that still has over 150 defects in it. Keep in mind, that the same company has had two subsequent breakages since the rupture in pipeline 6B. Flipping great.

The Michigan Messenger has a great timeline of the events and Enbridge's response.
