Enbridge is installing replacement pipeline for the vast majority of the line which created havoc in the Kalamazoo River. This is a good thing for the environment and a good thing for Enbridge. It may not be so good for the owners who have their properties torn apart with a de minimus compensation.
Enbridge is also acquiring another 50-mile right-of-way for installation of a replacement line in a different area from where it previously existed.
At this time, Enbridge has filed its Petition and the MPSC staff has now filed its response. Shortly, the filing will be sent to the affected owners of the properties; thereby allowing owners to challenge the project or any part of the project should they so choose.
This blog is not telling owners to challenge the project, nor is it telling the owners that they can challenge the project. Quite simply, owners should be aware they have the opportunity to review what Enbridge is doing and speak their individual minds about the issues involved.
