EPA Wants More From Enbridge on Kalamazoo River Cleanup
EPA has proposed a new Order to require Enbridge to do further cleanup from its July 2010 pipeline spill on the Kalamazoo River in southwest Michigan. The Order, if finalized, would require installation of additional oil-containment devices at the following locations: upstream of Ceresco Dam, upstream of Kalamazoo Dam, upstream of the neck of Morrow Lake, and at other locations to be specified by U.S. EPA. The new Order would also require removal of the submerged oil and oil-contaminated sediment or other sources of sheen from these same areas by August 1, 2013. Enbridge has 30 days from October 3 to submit written comments on the proposed Order.
