The Enbridge River Watch Program, the primary educational initiative of the South Central Eco Institute (SCEI), has seen hundreds of Manitoba high-school students track water-quality information from the Lake Winnipeg watershed.

To track the health of rivers, students take a sample and test for various chemicals. They upload the data to the SCEI website, where it is made available to the public and Manitoba's conservation districts.

For well over 60 years, the Canadian Mainline system has been the backbone of Enbridge’s Liquids Pipelines operations. Stretching from Edmonton to Gretna, Man., where it crosses the international border, the Canadian Mainline system allows Enbridge to transport 65 per cent of Western Canada’s crude exports.

For more than 60 years, we’ve also been an integral component of the towns and cities near the Canadian Mainline right-of-way. At Enbridge, we believe in strengthening the communities where we live, work, and play. And as we continue our work along the Canadian Mainline right-of-way, we’re proud to say that we will continue to deliver on our promise – making communities near our projects and operations better places to live – well into the future.

“Our watersheds and our wetlands are the kidneys of our system,” says Kent Lewarne.

Lewarne is a high-school science teacher at Nellie McClung Collegiate in Manitou, Man. He’s also the driving force behind the South Central Eco Institute (SCEI) team, which has seen hundreds of students take part in its Enbridge River Watch Program – an environmental initiative that tracks water-quality information from the Lake Winnipeg watershed.
