Over 800,000 gallons of oil spilled into Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River on Sunday and Monday, July 25 and 26. Eight million gallons of oil traverse the area every day en route from Indiana to the major refinery town of Sarnia, Ontario. A Canadian company, Enbridge Inc, owns the pipeline.
The Kalamazoo Oil Spill disaster is sending 800k gallons of oil toward Lake Michigan.
