Oil pipeline shut-down in WNY


CHEEKTOWAGA, NY (WIVB) – A 91-mile oil pipeline that runs from Ontario to New York has been shut down following the discovery of a potential low-level leak near Buffalo.

The company that owns the 12-inch pipeline says about a gallon of a petroleum-based product was discovered when the line was exposed during a sewer installation project Monday.

The line is owned by Enbridge Inc., which also owns a pipeline that leaked near Chicago last week and one that ruptured from Indiana to Ontario that ruptured in Michigan in July.
