PSC Holds Informal Hearing | VideoJennifer Joas | 6/20/2012
Enbridge wants to lay a pipeline 500 feet from a new building. Commissioners say they`re concerned about public safety.
"It`s one thing for a private business or homeowner to issue a waiver. It`s quite another for a county commission to offer a waiver on behalf of whatever group might be aggregated in that particular facility. So I need to work through that a little bit," said Commissioner Kevin Cramer.
Enbridge agreed to increase the thickness of the pipe and bury it deeper underground for safety`s sake.
Commissioners also discussed a Hiland natural gas pipeline in McKenzie County. They will vote on both pipelines at their next meeting.
