Arkansas Tar Sand Spill Could Exceed 1st Estimate by 40%

Raise your hand if you are surprised at this 'news.'

If EPA’s highest number of 7,000 barrels turns out to be correct, the Ark. spill would be roughly a third the size of Michigan's 2010 dilbit disaster.

And the Michigan spill cleanup, not completed at a cost of $700 million, happened nearly three years ago:
And that one is still being cleaned up:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is ordering Enbridge Inc. to do additional dredging in the Kalamazoo River to clean up oil from a massive 2010 spill....

The order comes more than two years after a 30-inch pipeline owned by Enbridge ruptured near Marshall and then traveled about 35 miles downstream before being contained.

The EPA has said previously that work crews removed 1.1 million gallons of oil and 200,000 cubic yards of oil-contaminated sediment and debris from the river following the July 26, 2010, spill.
Enbridge? Here's its record...
