Rover Pipeline Donates $30,000 To Michigan County Emergency Management Services

Check Presentations to Lenawee, Washtenaw and Livingston Counties February 28

Part of Rover’s $270,000 donation to emergency management agencies across its four-state route


Rover Pipeline presented $10,000 checks to Livingston, Washtenaw and Lenawee County Emergency Management Departments last week as part of a commitment to donate a total of $270,000 across its four-state route. The check presentations took place Wednesday, February 28,  in each of the three counties in Michigan through which the Rover Pipeline traverses.

Rover Pipeline officials say they are committed to be a good neighbor, a good business partner and a valued member of these communities. Rover Pipeline has made similar donations to county emergency management agencies across the four-state route, totaling $270,000 across the 27 counties in Ohio, Michigan, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

The Washtenaw County Hazardous Materials Response Team was pleased to announce it had received a donation of $10,000 from Rover Pipeline. Victor Chevrette, Team Director and Chief of the Superior Township Fire Department, stated, “This much needed funding will be used toward the purchase of an Area Rae Pro air monitor.  This monitor is used on all Emergency Incident Responses to conduct air monitoring. The current air monitors are 17 years old and are no longer supported for updates and repairs.  The Washtenaw County Hazardous Materials Response Team operates on a limited budget by donations, fundraiser and Fire Department Membership Dues.  We greatly thank Rover Pipeline for its generous donation.”

Currently, the Rover Pipeline is more than 99% complete with construction of the project. Phase 1 was placed into service in phases with Phase 1A going into service on August 31, 2017; Phase 1B was placed into service on December 15, 2017.  Phase 1 is now capable of transporting more than 1.7 Bcf (billion cubic feet) per day of natural gas from Cadiz, Ohio, to Defiance, Ohio. The full project is anticipated to be in service in the second quarter of 2018.
