EPA says 50 Michigan oil spill sites clean

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) — Federal officials say crews have finished cleanup at 50 sites in Michigan where a pipeline break spilled more than 800,000 gallons of oil.

Officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency briefed hundreds of people at a meeting Monday night in Battle Creek.

WWMT-TV says EPA official Mark Durno reports 17 sites in the Kalamazoo River system are still being cleaned, while 24 others are being monitored.

The spill from an Enbridge Inc. pipeline happened in July near Marshall. Much of the cleanup has been finished, but the EPA says some operation and maintenance will continue.

The pipeline runs from Griffith, Ind., to Sarnia, Ontario.
