First of MODS if this is in the wrong place please move to appropriate spot.

So first off I currently live in Battle Creek, which is 10 mins. away from Marshall. There are a few concerns that i would like to point out. So first off our local high school where i graduated, there is a elementary school right next to it. The EPA has taken the elementary school and are hassling any one going through the driveway. Just to tell something that has happened to my parents while taking my sister up to the pool to lifeguard. So as my mother drove around back to the pool access as a EPA agent stops my moms car and hassles her about what she is doing, they ask her questions about what she is doing here and why did you go this way to drop her off. So my moms asks what they are doing here and I qoute "that is none of your concern" why would you ask that when obviously we know why they're there but they act like they are keeping a secret... On another note there has a been a new development that right across from the FireKeepers casino EPA and EMBRIDGE has taken over an empty lot and they have a lane blocked to let semis in and other vehicles the thing that concerns me is that about every 5 mins. they ask the first few cars and people in them what they are traveling on Michigan Ave. for.... Ok is that just me or is that weird? Any ideas?!

A pipeline carrying oil to Sarnia, Ont., has leaked more than three million litres of oil into a creek in southwestern Michigan, endangering birds and other wildlife.
The pipe belongs to Calgary-based Enbridge Inc. and carries about 30 million litres of crude oil a day from Griffith, Ind., to Sarnia.
The leak in the line, known as the Lakehead System, occurred Monday morning near the company's Marshall, Mich., pumping station near Battle Creek, Enbridge has confirmed. At least 19,500 barrels of oil spilled into the fast-flowing creek, which flows into the Kalamazoo River.

From here:

I am thinking the pipeline may have been sabotaged, or they think that is possible and are conducting an investigation. Or they just want to make sure to keep press and cameras out of the area like in the Gulf of Mexico.

Dear Howie:
I think spirit_horse has some very good points, HOWEVER those people have no right to treat your Mom that way! EPA: those folks are public servants of the land, not OWNERS, and Embridge is a company, whose pipeline spilled oil all over the place. IF they are doing an investigation, out of respect for the community, they should hold a news conference and explain that people will be stopped and asked what their business is on a public highway, and APOLOGIZE for the inconvenience to the public who are being polluted and delayed. Shame on them! Tell your Mom I'm sorry our country is crazy-- she didn't deserve that treatment!
