New Enbridge 6B Pipeline Set To Go into Ground in Michigan

Oct 15, 2012

After months of negotiations between oil giant Enbridge and Ingham County homeowners, workers have begun installing parts of the new 6B pipeline near Stockbridge, Michigan.

Right now, the pipe sits atop the land, but is expected to be put into the ground in the coming days.

Enbridge officials say the new pipeline will lay adjacent to the old one, and once the replacement is activated, the current line will be shut off, purged of its oil, and filled with nitrogen.

Some affected residents who live near Stockbridge off of M-52 say they're not happy with their relationship with Enbridge, and want the Michigan Public Service Commission to reconsider how it uses eminent domain.
