.@SpeakerBoehner Since you're Mr. Tar Sands, please tell MI how to clean up the Kalamazoo River spill from 7/25/2010

On July 25, 2010, 10 days after the disastrous BP Deepwater Horizon well was finally plugged, an Enbridge Energy pipeline carrying heavy Canadian tar sands crude burst near Talmadge Creek, which feeds into the Kalamazoo River that empties into Lake Michigan. According to the EPA, over a million gallons of the toxic oil gushed into the creek and quickly made its way into the Kalamazoo, contaminating riverbanks and sediments that are still closed to the public and undergoing cleanup today. It is not clear when the river will be opened up or what it will cost; at more than $700 million and counting, it already is the most expensive U.S. pipeline accident in history.
