Feds delay report on Kalamazoo oil spill
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - The release of a federal report detailing the cause of a 2010 pipeline rupture that spilled more than 800,000 gallons of oil in southern Michigan has been delayed.
The Kalamazoo Gazette says the report is expected to be released this fall, about six months later than expected. The National Transportation Safety Board attributed the delay to other investigations into separate pipeline incidents.
The report also is expected to offer future safety recommendations for the pipeline industry.
The July 2010 spill from Calgary, Alberta-based Enbridge Inc.'s pipeline sent oil into Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River. Enbridge says it will be able to finish its internal investigation after the report is released.
Cleanup efforts continue this year. The pipeline runs from Griffith, Ind., to Sarnia, Ontario.
