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.

The company wanted to move their deadline to December in order to deal with disputes over dredging the lake from Bell’s Brewery and Comstock Township.
