The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says crews have finished cleanup at 50 sites in the Kalamazoo River system where a pipeline break spilled more than 800,000 gallons of oil.
Officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency briefed hundreds of people at a meeting Monday night in Battle Creek.
EPA official Mark Durno reports 17 sites are still being cleaned, while 24 other sites are being monitored.
The spill from an Enbridge Inc. pipeline happened in July near Marshall. Much of the cleanup has been finished, but the EPA says some operation and maintenance will continue.
The pipeline runs from Griffith, Ind., to Sarnia, Ontario. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
