Enbridge Energy, Limited Partnership, et al., Civil Action No. 1:16–cv–914. The Complaint in this action asserts claims against Enbridge Energy, Limited VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:27 Jul 22, 2016 Jkt 238001 Partnership and eight related Enbridge entities (‘‘Enbridge’’) arising from two separate oil transmission pipeline failures that resulted in discharges of oil to waters of the United States and adjoining shorelines. One of these pipeline failures occurred on July 25, 2010, near Marshall, Michigan on a pipeline known as Line 6B, and resulted in discharges of oil to Talmadge Creek, a large stretch the Kalamazoo River, and their adjoining shorelines. The other pipeline failure occurred on or about September 9, 2010, in Romeoville, Illinois on a pipeline known as Line 6A, and resulted in discharges of oil primarily to an unnamed tributary to the Des Plaines River, a retention pond, and their adjoining shorelines. The Complaint seeks injunctive relief and civil penalties under Sections 309 and 311 of the Clean Water Act, as amended, 33 U.S.C. 1319 and 1321, for both the Marshall, Michigan and the Romeoville, Illinois oil spills. In addition, under Section 1002 of the Oil Pollution Act, as amended, 33 U.S.C. 2702, the Complaint seeks to recover from Enbridge all unreimbursed removal costs incurred and to be incurred by the United States in connection with the Marshall, Michigan oil spill. Under the proposed Consent Decree, Enbridge will pay a civil penalty of $61 million for the Marshall, Michigan oil spill, and an additional $1 million for the Romeoville, Illinois oil spill. In addition, Enbridge will pay over $5.4 million in unreimbursed federal removal costs that the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund (‘‘Fund’’) paid in connection with the Marshall, Michigan oil spill through October 1, 2015, and Enbridge will pay all additional removal costs consistent with the National Contingency Plan that are paid by the Fund after October 1, 2015, in connection with the Marshall, Michigan oil spill. Prior to the Consent Decree, the United States billed Enbridge for additional federal removal costs incurred in connection with both the Marshall, Michigan oil spill and the Romeoville, Illinois oil spill, and Enbridge paid all such amounts billed. Finally, the proposed Consent Decree includes an extensive program of injunctive relief, including a series of measures designed to (1) reduce the potential for future pipeline failures that could result in unlawful discharges from Enbridge’s Lakehead System pipelines, (2) improve leak detection capabilities and Enbridge’s response to situations that could indicate potential pipeline failures, and (3) improve Enbridge’s emergency response and preparedness capabilities to better PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 address any future spills that might occur. The publication of this notice opens a period for public comment on the proposed Consent Decree.
