Officials: No invasive species in Michigan lake

Updated: Tuesday, September 2, 2014

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says no new invasive species have been found after a day of collecting fish and other aquatic species in Morrow Lake.

MLive.com reports scientists are asking the public to look out for unusual plants or animals that may have come to the area in the four years since the Enbridge oil spill.

State fisheries biologist Seth Herbst says the dredging and cleanup work that's happened since the oil spill has made the area particularly vulnerable to invasive species. The Calgary, Alberta-based pipeline company leaked crude oil into Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River in 2010, spilling about 843,000 gallons of oil. The river runs through Morrow Lake.

Herbst says invasive seeds, eggs and small creatures can travel on equipment used to clean up spills.
