(WLNS) – A major announcement is expected tomorrow in connection with the 2010 Enbridge oil spill into the Kalamazoo River.
The Department of Justice and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are expected to make what is being called a “major announcement” tomorrow morning in Marshall. No more details have been made available about the announcement.
In 2010 800,000 gallons of oil spilled into the Kalamazoo River and Talmadge Creek.
The spill covered more than 38 miles of river and over 4,000 acres of land.
Enbridge has already agreed to a $75 million dollar settlement to restore and bring the river back, which is part of the $1.2 billion cleanup Enbridge is responsible for.
In that earlier agreement $30 million was to go to restore 300 acres of wetlands, $18 million to remove a dam and restoring the flow of the river and $10 million to improve recreational access to the river.
Wednesday’s announcement also is related to a 2010 oil spill in Romeoville, Illinois.
6 News will be in Marshall tomorrow for the announcement and will have updates online and on 6 News.
