Company files plan to restart Mich. oil pipeline

August 10, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Enbridge and the Environmental Protection Agency say the cleanup is progressing well.

At least 820 thousand gallons of oil flowed from the ruptured pipeline into the Kalamazoo River. The contaminated water will be treated and released in Griffith, Indiana where the pipeline starts.

Meanwhile, the first group of birds rescued after the oil spill will soon be headed to a new home at a bird sanctuary in Michigan.
