KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — Kalamazoo County and Enbridge Inc. have reached a proposed agreement in which the county would get $100,000 and the pipeline company would have the right to set up a dredging operation at a park.
The operation would be similar to one proposed for Comstock Commerce Park earlier this year.
According to Deputy County Administrator John Faul, the difference is Enbridge would pump dredged sediment to tanker trucks and ship the material to an off-site facility in Calhoun County instead of processing the sediment at a dredge pad on-site at River Oaks County Park.
The Kalamazoo Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/19tPwhG ) the county Board of Commissioners will consider the proposal on Tuesday.
It's part of the continued cleanup from a massive oil spill in 2010. Calgary, Alberta-based Enbridge was responsible for the spill.
