LANSING - A Michigan agency said the Kalamazoo River oil spill likely will not reach Lake Michigan.
Mary Dettloff, spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment, said today that crews will attempt to corral the spill near Morrow Lake, which is a dam pond on the Kalamazoo River located immediately east of the city of Kalamazoo.
Enbridge Energy Partners, the company taking responsibility for the spill, initially estimated that 840,000 gallons of crude oil were spilled into the Talmadge Creek near the city of Marshall. But Congressman Mark Schauer (D-Battle Creek) said in a conference call today that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency now estimates one million gallons were spilled.
“I just came from Fort Custer and you can smell it now,” Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Pali Matyas said. “... It’s all rolling downhill and there are a lot of complications.”

i'm gonna make it a little easier on these guys, and all of you should too. you have no idea how bad these oil companies have it! it sure isn't easy to destroy the planet.. i say we all go outside and dump oil in our yards, or any dangerous chemicals you may have lying around if oil is unavailable. we have a duty to our country, no, to the world. GO BP!!!! GO AMERICA!!!!!! #1!!!!!!!!!
