COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
says itís looking at enforcement options after Enbridge Inc. as expected
missed a deadline to finish dredging work as part of cleanup of a 2010
Michigan oil spill.
The EPA last year denied the Calgary, Alberta-based companyís request for a
10-month extension of its deadline from Dec. 31 for dredging sections of the
Kalamazoo River. The spill sent about 843,000 gallons of crude into the
river and a tributary creek.
WOOD-TV reports the EPA says Enbridge finished operations at two areas it
was ordered to dredge, but not a third.
Enbridge spokesman Jason Manshum said in an email Thursday that the company
plans to complete the work and will resume dredging when spring conditions
The pipeline runs from Sarnia, Ontario, to Griffith, Ind.
