Consumers Energy will continue to work at their Chelsea Valve site at 2401 M-52, Chelsea, Michigan. Over the next couple of months there will be activity at the site starting Monday, August 15th through October 31st. The crews will be onsite and there will be equipment that has back-up beepers and other larger vehicles.
Beginning September 6th they will be flaring the gas at the site. During this time there may be an odor (similar to rotten eggs), a large flame and sound coming from the site. This is similar to the flaring that occurred last month at the site. The odor, large flame and sound are part of the flaring process and there will be crew members onsite when this is happening, along with all other safety precautions.
Consumers Energy Public Safety Manager will be notifying the Washtenaw County EM, fire and police and Michigan State police that we will be flaring during this time.
