For more than 160 years, Enbridge Gas Distribution has been improving and expanding its pipeline system. The planning process for a new pipeline involves multiple steps, including public participation, identifying environmental and socio-economic features that may be impacted by pipeline construction and operation, and developing measures to protect them. By following these practices, Enbridge Gas Distribution continues to demonstrate its dedication to sound environmental stewardship and community involvement in the continuing safe operation of its expanding natural gas distribution network.
