According to mlive.com, the cleanup of the Kalamazoo River oil leak is coming along fine, but there are other concerns. In a nutshell, the river is running high and at some spots, running out of its channel. This could affect wildlife and vegetation. There is also a Superfund site in that river for cleanup of polychlorinated byphenols. The hopes are that the oil slick is stopped at the Morrow dam because beyond that starts the Superfund cleanup site some 80 miles down from that dam. And the city “plans to shutdown a municipal well field located adjacent to Morrow Lake as a “precautionary measure” against oil contamination in the area’s drinking-water system.”
