Nobody gets water use out of the Kalamazoo River and haven't for many, many years. Back in the day before strict EPA requirements, I guess that a bunch of companies just dumped there waste into the river. Tons and tons of people use the water out of Lake Michigan though. It could also be bad for those with well water. The oil could soak down into where the well pulls its water from.

Anyone notice there is not much talk of the China oil spill?

Well at least here there has been maybe 1 thing said about it. I dont recall even seeing much on the National News either.

Maybe I am just missing it when they talk about it.

x2 i don't understand what is going on lately! we just capped the BP spill in the gulf, and now 3 more pop up. one in the gulf again, the second in Kallamazoo, and the third in China. This is absolutely insane and world governments needs to restructure how they handle these environmental disasters and make stricter guidelines and procedures regarding the transportation, storage, and extraction of oil and other hazardous chemicals!

My dad works for Enbridge and is fairly high up in the ranks (I have met the CEO of Enbridge numerous times). The day this happened we were at my brother's house building a garage and he got 4 calls from the same number and we didn't know who it was from when we saw the missed calls. I got home two days ago and turned on the news and immediately called and said that this happened. His job is not in jeopardy but this means probably no success sharing bonus haha. The news tries to make the company come off as having a "terrible track record" by saying that Enbridge reports 60-80 spills a year, but 90% of those spills occur at the pumping stations where only a barrel or two of oil is spilt.
I agree that this sucks and I hope that they can fix this asap with as little environmental damage as possible.
