MARSHALL (WKZO) -- Enbridge is in the process of complying with an EPA demand that they dredge portions of the Kalamazoo River to remove submerged oil.
They have and set up a location to dry out contaminated soils and prepared other facilities now while they are waiting for DEQ permits, because the EPA has only given them until December 31st to complete the work.
Spokesman Jason Manshum says they have been given five locations along the river where the EPA feels dredging will be required, and they want to begin operations as soon as the permits arrive..
He says they have been trying to inform everyone involved but things are happening fast. They expect to begin dredging next month.
