Enbridge Reaches Oil Spill Clean Up Agreement With MI DNR

Enbridge Energy is the owner and operator of a pipeline from which more than 800-thousand gallons of heavy crude oil was released to Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River in late July. The order requires Enbridge to assess the extent of oil remaining in the affected areas, ensuring that contaminant levels are returned to safe levels under state criteria, and restore impacted natural resources. The State reserves the right to take other needed enforcement action in the future, including any fines and penalties that may be appropriate under the law. The order also preserves the right of the State to seek compensation for injuries and damages to natural resources arising from the spill. The emergency cleanup that began immediately after the spill is largely completed, but Enbridge will continue to undertake oversight and monitoring required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The order entered by the DNRE and Enbridge sets forth the requirements for Enbridge to move into the long-term remediation of affected areas and restoration of natural resource functions under the oversight of the Michigan DNRE.
