The Enbridge Oil Spill

  • National Wildlife Federation Staff
  • Aug 16, 2010

On July 26, 2010, an accident on the Line 6B oil pipeline owned by Enbridge Energy Partners in Calhoun County, Michigan released over 800,000 gallons of crude oil into a tributary of the Kalamazoo River.

As of August 5, the spill had affected Talmadge Creek and at least 30 miles of the Kalamazoo River downstream of Marshall, and the cause of the leak was still unknown. The spill has led to evacuations as well as drinking water, fish consumption and swimming advisories, and containment and cleanup response by the company and a number of agencies.
