Kalamazoo River Oil Spill

Guest LAW

Recommended Posts

A pipeline malfunction in Calhoun Country caused over a million gallons of oil to spill into the Kalamazoo river.


The Calhoun County Public Health Department is advising people to stay out of the water, avoid contact with oil and avoid prolonged exposure to fumes.


The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has asked residents to not attempt to rescue wildlife from the river. Attempting to rescue animals can expose you to dangerous chemicals. It can also further harm the animals by increasing their stress.


To report affected wildlife or to learn more on how you can help with animal rehibilitation contact Circle D Wildlife Refuge at 269-365-5349 or Wildside Rehab, Eaton Rapids, at 517-663-4170. For information on how the government is responding to the spill visit
