Romeoville pipeline expected back in service

September 16, 2010 (ROMEOVILLE, Ill.) Enbridge Energy Partners says the leak has been repaired. The leak sent oil bubbling to the surface and into vegetation, a retention pond and a sewage treatment plant.

The pipe had to be shut down, interrupting the flow of oil to Midwest refineries.

The temporary shutdown of the pipe was also a factor in a spike in Chicago-area gas prices.
