We take a closer look at how pipelines keep things moving in Wisconsin and throughout the US in this video from Building Wisconsin TV. Host Stuart Keith meets with Ron Spoerl from Hawk Industries to learn about reclamation and safety, Trent Wetmore from Enbridge shows how pumping stations operate, Bob Osborn from Michels Corporation talks about pipeline construction and Joel Zielke from Steamfitters Local 601 explains the training and the pathway to becoming a pipeline welder, known as a Rig Welder.
