Enbridge Energy Limited Partnership has agreed to pay $177 million to settle claims brought by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency arising from 2010 oil spills in Marshall, Michigan, and Romeoville, Illinois, that discharged more than 26,000 barrels of oil.  As part of the settlement, Enbridge will spend at least $110 million on measures to prevent spills and improve operations across nearly 2,000 miles of its pipeline system in the Great Lakes region, and will pay $62 million in civil penalties for Clean Water Act violations.
