Enbridge Energy and its affiliates will pay $75 million to settle a 2010 oil spill into Michigan's Talmadge Creek and Kalamazoo River that dumped 800,000 gallons of oil, state officials said on Wednesday. "The agreement will finalize cleanup and restoration requirements for areas affected by the spill," that stemmed from an Enbridge owned and operated pipeline, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Director Dan Wyant said in a statement. Under the agreement, filed on Tuesday with a judge in Calhoun County Circuit Court, Enbridge must finish cleaning up any remaining oil within about five years and pay the state's costs in overseeing clean-up and restoration projects, Michigan officials said.
