LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Officials say an oil spill that left a sheen on the Grand River in Lansing is blamed on an equipment malfunction at a power plant.
The Lansing State Journal and MLive.com report Sunday night's spill overflowed from a containment area at the Lansing Board of Water and Light's Eckert Power Plant near downtown. The utility says "fewer than 300 gallons escaped into the river" before oil-absorbing materials were in place.
The total amount of the spill wasn't immediately known. Oil-absorbing materials are expected to be in place for several days to collect the oil.
The Lansing Board of Water and Light said Monday it notified the Environmental Protection Agency and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
The utility says it's following standard cleanup procedures following the spill.
