Proposed Ethane Pipeline Open House

Posted on October 22, 2014 under: Announcements

There will be an open house in the Empress Hall Friday October 24, 2014 from 4:00 – 8:00, to discuss the proposed Ethane Pipeline Project and an Ethane Storage Facility located directly across the South Saskatchewan River from Empress. The proposed project will develop underground caverns for the storage of ethane. As Empress is the closest community to this proposed project, it is important to be informed about the process and possible implications on the surrounding environment. Please take the time to go out and learn more about the project and the implications to our Community.
