Monthly we speak with guests from the Annis Water Resources Institute, with Executive Director Dr. Alan Steinman talking about a new grant to the AWRI, the MI-Israel delegation coming to Muskegon and the EPA conference.
State officials are taking public comments on a plan by Enbridge Energy Partners to install additional supports for its twin oil pipelines in the waterway where Lakes Michigan and Huron meet.
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality says a 20-day comment period began Monday for an Enbridge application for a permit to place the steel supports beneath sections of the Straits of Mackinac pipelines.
An easement granted in the 1950s requires that the pipelines have some type of support no more than 75 feet apart.
