(Battle Creek, MI)  --  The Environmental Protection Agency is holding a community meeting in Battle Creek, Michigan tonight to discuss the Kalamazoo River oil spill.  More than 800-thousand gallons of crude oil has spilled into the river since part of an oil pipeline owned by Canadian energy company Enbridge was damaged July 26th near Marshall, Michigan.

So far, more than 160 animals have been recovered from the Kalamazoo River, with most being geese and turtles.  The goal of tonight's meeting is to update the public on oil cleanup efforts.  Officials from the EPA and the Michigan state Department of Natural Resources and Environment will be on hand.
