Enbridge: Won't Miss Deadline For Cleaning Up Oil Spill

Posted: Updated:

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WLNS) - Oil giant Enbridge says it will not meet its deadline for removing the leftover oil that spilled into the Kalamazoo River after a pipe ruptured, leaking more than 800,000 gallons of crude in 2010.

The Environmental Protection Agency ordered the company in March to dredge sediment for remaining submerged oil.

An enbridge spokesman says the delay is partly due to problems getting a permit for one of the dredging sites.

The clean-up was supposed to be complete by the end of this year.
