Oil & Gas Pipelines
Pipelines are considered to be the safest and most efficient way to transport oil and gas commodities. But that does not mean they are without risk. A pipeline rupture would be devastating for Northern Michigan. It could result in contamination of our surface, ground, and drinking water supplies and death or disease of fish, aquatic insects, birds, and other wildlife.
Given the wealth of natural resources in our region, we must take every precaution to avert disaster, as well as be prepared to respond if a spill should occur.
