2016 Northern Michigan Open House Series



The Straits of Mackinac are a treasured resource for Michigan residents. The health and protection of these waterways are essential to the vitality, the sustainability and the economic prosperity of the region—and the state of Michigan.

Safety is our top priority at Enbridge. It’s the very foundation of our business. And during the week of June 20, we’ll be taking our safety message on the road through the Great Lakes State.

From June 21 to 23, we’ll be holding a series of six public engagement events throughout Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. This open-house series will travel through Manistique, Mackinaw City, Cheboygan, Petoskey, Gaylord and Traverse City.

During these summertime BBQ events, we will listen to residents and address your questions and concerns. We'll also reinforce and demonstrate the safety that’s built into every aspect of Enbridge’s energy infrastructure, including our Line 5 pipeline.

Find out more about Enbridge’s multi-pronged approach to safety, which includes prevention, inspection, monitoring, maintenance, leak detection and emergency response. Learn more about the purpose and operation of our pipelines, and see how Enbridge protects the vital water resources of the Great Lakes while meeting Michigan’s energy needs.

With displays, visuals and various pieces of equipment on hand, these trade show-style events will feature a wide range of Enbridge and industry experts who can answer your questions on various subjects, including:
