LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- A coolant spill in the Straits of Mackinac did not harm the Great Lakes.
That’s according to the Coast Guard and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
In April, electric cables leaked about 600 gallons of synthetic coolant into the Straits of Mackinac. The cables are owned by the American Transmission Company.
Experts gave a presentation about the spill cleanup and analysis to the state’s Pipeline Safety Advisory Board Monday. They said the spill was “minor” and caused no significant environmental impact.
