A pipeline has been cleared to restart two months after spilling oil into a southern Michigan river.

The Enbridge Inc. pipeline running from Griffith, Ind. to Sarnia, Ontario has written permission from federal regulators to restart Monday.

Enbridge did not immediately respond to inquiries from The Associated Press about whether the pipeline had restarted.

The pipeline has been shut down since the company reported a massive oil leak July 26. An estimated 820,000 to 1 million gallons spilled near Marshall, Mich. and polluted the Kalamazoo River.

The pipeline will restart at lower pressure and with increased monitoring. Enbridge also has agreed to make several repairs.
