Why Do We Need An Upgrade?
Like every piece of technology and infrastructure, Line 5 needs to be updated with all of the new techniques, equipment, and materials that have been developed over the last 65 years. From monitoring and safety to construction and steel – an upgraded Line 5 would be a benefit to everyone and our environment.
Just think of it like this: your old cell phone, old TV, and likely, your old car run fine, but it is the new technology, the new materials and the new designs that make them more efficient and ultimately better to use. The same principle applies to pipelines. While Line 5 still runs efficiently, it’s been over 65 years.
Maybe it’s time for an upgrade?
