State officials are announcing Wednesday a $75 million settlement with Enbridge Energy to finalize cleanup terms with the Canadian pipeline owner responsible for 2010's massive Kalamazoo River oil spill. The agreement comes five years after an underground pipeline near Marshall ruptured, releasing more than 800,000 gallons of heavy crude oil into a nearby creek and, eventually, the river. It was the largest inland oil spill in U.S. history, which has some environmental groups questioning if the settlement goes far enough. (Detroit News)

Enbridge Energy can go ahead with dredging operations at Morrow Lake this spring.

Last night the Comstock Township Planning Commission granted them a permit to dredge at the Benteler Automotive property between Michigan State Highway Ninety-Six and Interstate 94 near Thirty-Third Street. Enbridge is under order from the Environmental Protection Agency to remove oil that’s settled at the river bottom.

It’s part of the cleanup from the massive Enbridge pipeline spill near Marshall in 2010.
