People flooded a state board meeting today to express their concern about an oil and gas pipeline in Lake Michigan.
Enbridge energy owns the “Line Five” pipeline beneath the Mackinac straits. A company official gave a presentation on the current condition of the pipeline and new tests they’re running to the Michigan Pipeline Safety Advisory Board.
The presentation was requested after an independent report raised questions about the integrity of the pipeline.
Ryan Duffy is with Enbridge. He says there’s nothing in the report that’s new.
“All those things that he brought up, those are things that we look at constantly and we study and we do integrity tests. And all our tests have shown that the line is in good shape.”
Environmental groups say a rupture in Line Five would devastate the Great Lakes.
