Ma kahi aneane ʻehā mau makahiki mai ka wā i ʻike ʻia ai ka pōpoki ʻo Iulai 26, 2010 kokoke i Marshall, ʻo ka hui pipili o Kanaka e uapo nei i ka hoʻomaʻemaʻe.

Ua haʻi ʻo Comstock Town Town Supervisor Ann Nieuwenhuis ka hana ma kā Kalamazoo County kalana i mālama ʻia i ka hana ma waho o ka lehulehu.

"I kēlā me kēia pule ʻelua ka (US Environmental Protection Agency) e hoʻonohonoho i kahi hālāwai kūloko ma Marshall aʻu e hele kino ai a i ʻole ke kelepona," wahi a Nieuwenhuis. "ʻElua mau pule i hala aku nei ua noi wau e hele i ka pūnaewele. ʻO koʻu manaʻo aia iā mākou ka mana Cadillac (o nā hana dredging). Ua noʻonoʻo ka mea hoʻolimalima i ka nui o ka noʻonoʻo pehea e hoʻonohonoho ai, "i ʻōlelo ai ʻo ia, ka hopena i kahi hana mālie, maikaʻi, palekana.

"ʻO lākou ka māka ma ke kaʻina manawa a mākou i hoʻonohonoho ai no lākou, a hilinaʻi wau e hoʻihoʻi ʻia ka ʻāina i ke ʻano (ma mua o ka ninini ʻia ʻana) e ka hopena o Nowemapa, ʻo ia ka ʻaelike ʻaelike," wahi a Nieuwenhuis.

Ua ʻōlelo ʻo haʻi aku ka ʻōlelo kumu a Enbridge, ʻo Jason Manshum, i ka wā e pau ai ka lepo i ʻohi ʻia mai ka ʻeneke Morrow Lake, ua manaʻo ʻia ʻo ia ma waena o ke kauwela-i ke kauwela, kahi hana i hōʻike ʻia ma lalo o kahi kauoha a March 2013 e EPA e hoʻopau. E hoʻomau ka hoʻoneʻe ʻana o Riverbank ma o ka hāʻule ʻana ma ka holo ʻana o ka mana o 35 mile ma mile o Calhoun a me Kalamazoo ʻikepili e pili ana i ka hoʻomaʻemaʻe ʻana, ua ʻōlelo ʻo ia.

Mai ka hoʻokuʻu ʻia ʻana o ka aila nui mai ka ʻōnaehana pipeline o Enbridge, ua hana pū ka mokuʻāina a me nā aupuni pekelala e kiaʻi i ka mālama ʻana a me ka lawe ʻia ʻana o ka aila mai nā wahi a puni.

"Ke lawe mai nei mākou i ka lepo a me nā mea kanu maoli a me nā kumulāʻau e hana i kahi ʻōmaʻomaʻo nani e like me ka mea inā ʻaʻole i ninini ʻia ma laila," i ʻōlelo ʻo Manshum, "no kā mākou ʻaelike me ka (Keʻena ʻo Environmental Equality a me ka Ke Keʻena Waiwai Kūlohelohe ʻo Michigan). ”

A laila, ma kahi o ka nānā ʻana i ke kaiapuni manawa, hoʻopau ʻia kā Enbridge hana, i ʻōlelo ʻo Manshum. "Inā pono e kamaʻilio i kahi kikoʻī (e hoʻi mākou), akā i ko mākou ʻike, aia nō mākou i nā pae hope loa."

Ua manaʻo mua ʻia ka ʻoihana e hana me ka hana hana o ka ʻū ma Morrow Lake ma ka hopena o 2013, akā he pilikia ka loaʻa ʻana o kahi pūnaewele e hiki ai i kahi pahu dredge e paʻa ai i ka manawa ma mua o ka lawe ʻia ʻana. Ma Pepeluali, loaʻa ʻo Enbridge i ka ʻae mai ke Komisina Hoʻolālā Hoʻolālā Comstock e waiho i kahi hoe pahu ma Benteler Industries, kahi e noho ai ma ka ʻākau o ka loko ma East Michigan Avenue.

Ua ʻae ʻia kēlā ʻae i luna o Enbridge e hoʻohana ana i ke alanui no ka haʻalele ʻana i ke kikowaena ma Michigan Avenue a me King Highway, a hiki i 200 mau pākēneka i kēlā me kēia lā no ka hoʻomākaʻi ʻia o ka ʻona. ʻO kahi kūlana ʻē aʻe, ua hoʻonohonoho ʻo Enbridge i nā mākaʻikaʻi o ka ea o ka ea kūpono i loko o kahi kokoke ʻo Fleetwood Neighborhood.

Mai ka hoʻomaka ʻana o ka hana dredging, ua ʻōlelo ʻo Nieuwenhuis, "ʻelua wale nō manawa a kāua i kelepona ai - ma ʻApelila 22 ua namunamu kekahi poʻe e pili ana i ka ʻaʻala diesel. He nui nā kalaka i loko a i waho no ka mea ʻo ia ka lā mua i hāpai ʻia ai nā kapu palena. "

I kekahi manawa i kapa aku ai kekahi kanaka i nā hoʻopiʻi ʻana i ka ʻono, ʻōlelo ʻo ia.

ʻO ka hana e hana nei i kēia kauwela ma mua o ka mākaʻi o Fleetwood, hūnā ʻia e ka earthen berm, a me ka lewa a me ka leo e ʻike ʻia no ka hōʻoia ʻana i kekahi mea ʻole i loko o ka ulu o Wenke softball ma River Oaks Park.

Ua hōʻike ikaika nā kalaka i ka pili pono i kā lākou ala i ʻae ʻia, wahi a Nieuwenhuis. "Ma kēia manawa, maikaʻi loa," i ʻōlelo ʻo ia.

Ma luna a kokoke i ke kahua o ka paina pipeline, kahi i hoʻomaka ai ka hana mal a a me nā hana hoʻomaʻemaʻe ʻē aʻe, pili nui ka moku'āina i ka mālama ʻana i ka hoʻihoʻi houʻana o ka muliwai, wahi a Michelle DeLong, ka Luna Hoʻokele o nā Koho Wahine Enbridge no ka Hoʻolālā Waiwai Waiwai MDEQ. E hoʻopiʻi ka ʻoi ʻana i nā ʻaoʻao o ke kahawai, hoʻokomo i nā lāʻau me ke kumu kumu i hoʻopili ʻia e hana ai i ka wahi iʻa, ka hana ʻana i nā loko wai pāpaʻu me nā wahi papa papau a hoʻokomo i ka pala ma ka kahawai. E hana i ka mea kanu i ka hopena o ke kauwela a hāʻule.

Eia hou, ke kiaʻi nei nā luna mokuʻāina "a ke hana pū nei me Enbridge ke haʻalele ka EPA i ka pūnaewele ke pau ka dredging," i ʻōlelo ʻo DeLong.

"Ma kekahi manawa, ke haʻalele ka US EPA i ka papahana, e hoʻomaka mākou i kā mākou papa hana loiloi lōʻihi a me ka loiloi me ka Keʻena ʻo Environmental Quality ʻo Michigan."

ʻO Steve Hamilton, ka pelekikena o ka Hale Waina o ka muliwai ʻo Kalamazoo, i ʻōlelo i kona manaʻo mai ka hele ʻana i nā hālāwai stakelholder maʻamau a hele ana i ka hana mokulele ʻo Morrow Lake i nā hebedoma i hala o ka hele ʻana he hopena maikaʻi loa.

"A me he mea lā ua maopopo iaʻu ʻaʻole lākou i mālama i ka uku no ka mālama pono ʻana i nā mea a me ka palekana, a me ka hōʻoia ʻana ʻaʻole pilikia ka hoʻokuʻu ʻana o ka ea. No laila, ʻaʻohe hoʻopiʻi mai koʻu kuanaʻike. ”
