May 24, 2012 - The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) today approved a settlement agreement authorizing Enbridge Pipelines (Toledo) Inc. to construct, own, operate, and maintain approximately 35 miles of new 20-inch diameter pipeline and associated station facilities for the transportation of crude oil and petroleum in Ingham, Jackson, Washtenaw and Wayne counties. The project is to be known as Line 79.
The settlement agreement indicates that the MPSC staff has certified to the Commission that the issuance of an order approving the map, route, and type of construction and authorizing the construction and operation of the pipeline as proposed by the company is just, reasonable, necessary and in the public interest.
Within 60 days after the completion of the construction of the project, the company will submit to the Commission "as built" maps.
The MPSC is an agency within the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
Case No. U-16937
