Group claims they have found tarballs down river from the oil spill

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A group with some impressive credentials claims that tar balls are being found downstream from the site of the Enbridge oil spill. The same kind of tarballs found after the Gulf Oil spill.

We have heard this allegation before during hearings over the dredge pad in Comstock. This week Chris Wahmhoff presented a tar ball in a jar to Kalamazoo City Commissioners, found in the river near the city’s Ball park.

Enbridge has denied their existence and the EPA has never mentioned that there are tar balls rolling down stream from the site of the Enbridge oil spill, but they did order dredging worth millions to keep submerged oil from moving downstream.

Wahmhoff told Kalamazoo City Commissioners that the balls form when bits of crude oil and toxins roll down the bed of the river, pushed by the flow of water,  picking up sand and oil as it rolls, like a snowball.
