COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has turned down Enbridge Inc.'s request for an extension to complete dredging of Michigan's Kalamazoo River to clean up after a July 2010 oil pipeline spill.
Calgary, Alberta-based Enbridge made the request earlier this month for the EPA to extend its deadline past Dec. 31. The pipeline company had said the request was due in part to opposition by some area residents over the two chosen dredge pad sites surrounding Morrow Lake in Kalamazoo County's Comstock Township.
The pipeline runs from Sarnia, Ontario, to Griffith, Ind.
