The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) today issued an order authorizing Consumers Energy Company to construct and operate the DeWitt Tie-Line, a natural gas interconnection pipeline just less than two miles long. The project will provide an alternate tie between two large gas pipelines serving the Lansing area. It is intended to maintain capacity and delivery pressure in Line 10.
Consumers Energy Company applied for approval to build and operate the project on Feb. 4, 2005.
The DeWitt Tie-Line will meet the requirements of the Michigan Gas Safety standards if constructed, tested and operated as proposed.
The MPSC is an agency within the Department of Labor & Economic Growth.
Case No. U-14421
