Enbridge Gas Inc. (Enbridge Gas) is undertaking an environmental study for the proposed Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte & Shannonville Community Expansion Project located within the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory in Ontario.

The study is being conducted in accordance with the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) Environmental Guidelines for the Location, Construction, and Operation of Hydrocarbon Pipelines and Facilities in Ontario, 7th Edition. Once the study is complete, Enbridge Gas will apply to the OEB for approval to construct the project, otherwise identified as a Leave To Construct (LTC).

The Project will involve the installation of approximately 17.3 kilometers (km) of a combination of 2-inch and 4-inch polyethylene natural gas pipeline. In addition, a station rebuild is required to accommodate additional customers onto the distribution system and will be constructed at the intersection of York Road and Highway 49, in the northwest corner. The project is planned to be installed mainly within the existing municipal right-of-way with additional temporary working space potentially required for lay-down, storage and excess soils management.

We’re working in many project areas across Ontario as we prepare for future natural gas community expansion projects as part of the Ontario Government’s Natural gas Expansion Program. Area residents may see our crews completing soil sampling, land surveying, test digs and holding field meetings, which are all activities that help inform our project routes and timelines for construction. This pre-work is ongoing, and you may occasionally notice equipment in operation, and some noise. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. This work is being conducted by Enbridge Gas employees, or contractors working on our behalf. All employees and contractors carry identification at all times.
