Enbridge pipeline adjacent to Alberta Clipper leaks 126,000 gallons

The Enbridge crude oil pipeline that leaked on Friday night just south of the Canada-U.S. border is back in service. About 126,000 gallons of light crude oil was spilled, covering an area of 700 feet by 40 feet, contained within the Enbridge easement according to Enbridge public affairs. The ruptured pipeline, which was put into service in the mid-1970's, runs adjacent to the Alberta Clipper pipeline, which is under construction.
