To mark the ten-year anniversary of the Enbridge oil spill into the Kalamazoo River, please join the Pipeline Safety Trust for two roundtable discussions looking back at the spill and assessing its consequences. Panelists will discuss the current state of pipeline safety, regulatory affairs, operations, the condition of the Kalamazoo River, public health, and more. The sessions will take place 17 hours apart to coincide with the time of the pipeline rupture and its eventual discovery.
