NEW OIL SPILL CONTROL METHOD BEING TESTED ON DETROIT RIVER TODAY

 NEW OIL SPILL CONTROL METHOD BEING TESTED ON DETROIT RIVER TODAY
 Detroit's Marine Pollution Control, in conjunction with the EPA, will be testing a new method to control oil spills on the Detroit River most of today (Wednesday, April 22) at the foot of Sixth Avenue near the Riverfront Apartments.
 The method involves the use of water jets to force the oil into areas where it can be pumped more rapidly.
 Marine Pollution Control has participated in the cleanup of major oil and hazardous material oil spills for almost 25 years, including the Exxon Valdez and Persian Gulf spills.
