The Lyric Theater in Harbor Springs, Michigan is hosting an educational symposium event to address the safety of Enbridge’s controversial Line 5 twin pipelines that run under the Straits of Mackinac.

Line 5 has been in safe operation underneath the Straits since 1953 and has not yet experienced a leak. In recent years, however, environmentalists and other communities have been skeptical of the pipeline’s integrity and have voiced their concerns about its safety.

At the event, which will be hosted October 12 at 7:00pm, individuals and groups will hear from a retired chemical engineer, environmental attorney, and other speakers about various topics surrounding the twin oil pipelines.

Other topics that will be mentioned at the event include the state of Michigan’s energy economy, regulatory standards, and assessments of oil spill response plans.
