WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Monday filed a proposed settlement requiring Enbridge Inc to complete natural resource restoration projects and pay about $4 million following its 2010 oil pipeline spill in Michigan, the Justice Department said.

The July 2010 spill dumped 800,000 gallons of oil and affected 38 miles of Michigan's Kalamazoo River. Enbridge, Canada's largest pipeline company, last month reached a settlement with state officials to pay $75 million over the incident.
