IDEM invites citizens to a public hearing about two Section 401 Water Quality Certifications for Enbridge Energy to place fill materials into waters of the State of Indiana. The hearing will run from 1 to 4 p.m. (local time) on Tuesday, December 18, 2012, in the LaPorte County Library, 904 Indiana Avenue in LaPorte.

 

Enbridge Energy owns and operates a 30-inch diameter crude oil and liquid petroleum pipeline and plans to replace it with a 36-inch diameter pipe. The new pipe will run parallel to the old pipe through Lake, Porter, LaPorte, and St. Joseph counties.

 

The water quality certifications will allow Enbridge to impact 76.3 wetland acres across 145 different wetlands to install the new pipeline. Enbridge will re-plant the area affected by the construction and restore an additional 70 acres of wetland on an Indiana Department of Natural Resources property in Porter County.  

 

Additional information may be obtained from Marty Maupin, Project Manager, by phone at (317) 233-2471 or by e-mail at mmaupin@idem.IN.gov.

 

The public can download the certification application and associated documents from the IDEM website at www.idem.IN.gov/6798.htm or see a copy at IDEM's Central File Room, 12th floor of the Indiana Government Center North building, 100 North Senate Avenue, Indianapolis.
