EPA Response to Enbridge Spill in Michigan
Enbridge Oil Spill Settlement
In a July 2016 settlement Enbridge agreed to spend at least $110 million on a series of measures to prevent spills and improve operations across nearly 2,000 miles of its pipeline system in the Great Lakes region.
On July 26, 2010, a 30-inch pipeline belonging to Enbridge Inc. ruptured near Marshall, Michigan and contaminated Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River with hundreds of thousands of gallons of crude oil. EPA ordered Enbridge to dredge submerged oil and oil-contaminated sediment from the Kalamazoo River. From 2010 to 2014 over 1.2 million gallons of oil were recovered from the river.
