Canadian company shuts down third oil pipeline


CHICAGO – A Canadian company that is working to clean up oil spills outside Chicago and in southern Michigan has closed a third pipeline after a possible leak was found in New York.

Enbridge says a 91-mile pipeline that runs from Ontario, Canada, to New York was shut down after about a gallon of petroleum-based product was found during a sewer installation project Monday. The company says all of the product has been cleaned up and crews were working to find the source.

It's the third pipeline Enbridge has shut down since July.

Enbridge also owns a pipeline that leaked near Chicago last week and one from Indiana to Ontario that spilled oil into a southern Michigan waterway in July.
