Government agencies will practice responding to an oil spill from a pipeline crossing the St. Clair River tomorrow.
The pipeline passes beneath the St. Clair River just south of Port Huron.
The drill will involve a simulated 13-minute, 5,000-barrel oil spill. The exercise will involve boats in the river and absorbent booms in the water, all to corral and collect fictional oil leaking from the pipeline.
The drill involves government agencies and the pipeline’s owner, Enbridge.
