- How might a tar sands pipeline spill affect Wisconsin?
The National Academy of Sciences recently confirmed what residents of Kalamazoo, Michigan and many other communities already knew; we do not have the technology or ability to clean up tar sands when it spills in water. Six years after the Kalamazoo spill and over $1 billion later, the spill is not all cleaned up. If a spill similar to that in Kalamazoo occurred in the St. Croix River, Wisconsin River, Rock River, or on the shores of Lake Superior, Wisconsin’s water, economy, and way of life could be permanently altered. Wisconsin relies heavily on it’s many lakes for jobs, agriculture, recreation, tourism, etc. Polluted streams will hugely affect the families, businesses, and wildlife to whom Wisconsin is home. Much of the projected damage is irreparable.
