Environment - More on "Amid Pipeline Debate, Two Costly Cleanups Forever Change Towns"
Updating this ILB entry from August 11th on the continuing problems relating to the Enbridge spill three years ago in Marshall, Michigan, Mike Mikus had a story in the August 15th Gary Post-Tribune headed "Enbridge explains new oil spill protocols." It begins:
MERRILLVILLE — Using a hypothetical spill in Hobart, Enbridge officials explained how new plans developed by the pipeline company would address an oil spill.
The company invited members of emergency response crews Wednesday to hear how Enbridge staff would respond within the first 48 hours of a reported spill.
The company, according to staff at the panel, developed more detailed response plans after the pipeline rupture in Marshall, Mich. caused 20,082 barrels of oil to spill into the Kalamazoo River.
“Let’s not beat around the bush,” said Mark Curwin, Enbridge’s director of major projects execution. “Marshall happened. We can’t change that now. But what we can change is what we do since that happened. It has affected us as employees, and we spent a lot of time and effort trying to keep Marshall from happening again.”
