A Rover Pipeline protest will take place tonight.  Opponents of the planned location of the natural gas pipeline that would be built near a children’s camp are crying foul on how the plan fell into place and are demanding changes. 


Recently, there have been concerns that DTE has not been adequately engaged in the public input portion of the NEXUS natural gas pipeline project.  

In this week's "Issues of the Environment," WEMU's David Fair talks with Steven Hohf, manager of natural gas analytics for DTE Energy. They discuss environmental concerns, energy questions and why DTE has decided the proposed NEXUS natural gas pipeline is necessary.

A new natural gas pipeline is in the works and would expend the web of pipelines running through Washtenaw County.  In this week's "Issues of the Environment," WEMU's David Fair talks with Nancy Shiffler, chair of the Sierra Club's Michigan chapter, about the potential impacts of a new pipeline.
