BP Refinery Leaks Oil Into Lake Michigan

BP Refinery Leaks Oil Into Lake Michigan | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it
An Indiana official said a sheen of about 5,000 square yards was reported on Lake Michigan Monday afternoon.

Excerpt:

Lake Michigan acts as the drinking water source for 7 million people in the Chigago area alone, but EPA officials said on the call that the drinking water wouldn’t be affected by the spill. The EPA, BP and the Coast Guard are leading the cleanup effort, which involves placing booms on the water, scooping up oil, which has been turned hard and waxy by cold weather, with their hands, and cleaning up a nearby beach that was contaminated. BP told Reuters that they have had “no reports of any wildlife impacted,” and EPA officials confirmed this on the call.
