Oil spill clean-up continues

More than two years after the oil spill, containment booms are still in place on the Kalamazoo River.  Most of the river is open for recreation but workboats and the yellow booms are still very visible from River Oaks County Park.  There are signs saying the river is open, so it is probably possible to navigate through the booms.

The Environmental Protection Agency recently ordered the oil company to continue cleaning its spill.
Apparently the firm plans to build a new pipeline to replace its aging pipeline.
