Line 5 Legs Shut Down

LEAD: Enbridge Energy issues a statement on the forced shutdown of Line 5.

VERBATIM: A judge issued a temporary restraining order on Thursday stopping operations on Line 5’s east and west legs after a request from Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel who says the utility discovered damage but didn’t provide information to the government on what caused it. Enbridge officials say they inspected the line after the June 18 damage was found and determined the west leg could be reopened but the restraining order keeps it shut down.
