Pipeline Company Updates


Starting in Mid-March, Consumers Energy will begin our Pleasant Lake City Gate Rebuild at 12201 E. Pleasant lake Rd Manchester, MI 48158.  There will be some pre- construction work done on the site to prepare for the rebuild during the months of March and April. The actual rebuild will begin in July shortly after the holiday with contractor mobilization July 5-7th to prepare for construction. During this time you will see activity in the area, including trucks, construction equipment and additional manpower.  If during the rebuild process, there is a need to odorize the area, we will let you know prior. 


The Consumers Energy pump house on Reno Rd. is no longer needed for the operation of our Freedom Compressor Station in Freedom Township.  Therefore, we will be demolishing the structure in an environmentally friendly manner, protecting the lake and land during the process.  The demolition is expected to begin at the end of January (weather permitting) and continue through February.  During this time residents in the area will see construction vehicles and workers performing the demolition.  For the safety of the community, please be cautious around the area due to larger trucks, increased activity and do not enter or come near the construction area.  

Once demolition has concluded the area will continue to have a fence around the Consumers Energy owned land and will only be accessible to Consumers Energy employees and the local fire Department for training or emergency use.

Wolverine Pipeline - Fall 2021 Newsletter

Our Commitment to a Safe Working Environment
Thanks to the relentless efforts of healthcare workers, emergency responders, and other COVID-19 heroes, many states are recommending businesses return to full capacity in the workplace. Wolverine Pipe Line Company falls into this category and is currently implementing its return to work plan while following CDC and MIOSHA guidelines. With safety as our top priority and core value as a company, we are keeping the following protocols in place in order to achieve the safest possible outcome:
  • Pre-Screen: Measure employee temperature and assess symptoms prior to start of work
  • Regular Monitoring: Employees complete “Are You Sick?” questionnaires upon arriving to work, self-monitor for symptoms, and report concerns to supervisors
  • Wear a Mask: Employees wear face masks when unable to maintain a proper social distance of six (6) feet outdoors and in enclosed spaces
  • Social Distance: Employees maintain six (6) feet and practice social distancing as work duties permit in the workplace
  • Disinfect and Clean Workspaces: Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting in all common areas
For the past year, we have been doing our part to reduce the spread of the virus. With a vaccine that is becoming more readily available, we are all confident that steps can be further taken to protect ourselves, our families, and our neighbors.
