The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) is currently accepting comments on a permit application from Enbridge Energy, Inc., to install up to 22 anchor support structures into the Lake Michigan lake bed for the Line 5 pipelines under the Straits of Mackinac between Emmet and Mackinac counties.

The public will have the opportunity to provide comment on the record about the permit application submitted under the authority of Part 325, Great Lakes Submerged Lands, of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended.

Additional information about the permit application is available at www.michigan.gov/pipelineanchors. This permit application public comment period will close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 4, 2017.

This public hearing precedes the Public Feedback Session beginning at 6 p.m. on the Dynamic Risk Assessment Systems, Inc., draft Alternatives Analysis for the Straits Pipeline report also at Little Bear East Arena & Community Center. While both events involve the Line 5 pipelines under the Straits of Mackinac, the public hearing is specific to the permit application for anchor supports.
