Kalamazoo River Reopens
Cleanup following the 2010 Enbridge pipeline leak near Marshall, Mich., under the direction of the U.S. EPA, has progressed to the point that the Kalamazoo River and Morrow Lake are now open for recreational use.
The first section; nearly 3 miles near Perrin Dam (Marshall Public Works building) to Saylor’s Landing, a new public river access sites that Enbridge built for the community at 15 Mile Road and the Kalamazoo River, opened on April 18. The remaining portion opened on June 21.
Enbridge will continue to perform activities related to cleanup even with the river open, under the direction of the U.S. EPA and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
The opening of the Kalamazoo River and Morrow Lake is a great opportunity to remind the general public about water safety. Please use age-specific personal flotation devices while recreating in or near the river. The health and safety of those using this beautiful waterway is a top priority.
