Let's talk about what is so great about Michigan especially the Upper Peninsula. I have lived here my entire life but I continue to find new and wonderful things to visit and learn about.

Fuel Spill in St. Marys River
The latest news coming out of the St. Marys River tells that there was a 50 gallon diesel fuel spill that the Coast Guard is monitoring. Have any of you seen any evidence of this or have any more news?
COAST GUARD INVESTIGATING POSSIBLE FUEL SPILL IN UPPER PENINSULA RIVER The U.S. Coast Guard is still waiting on lab results to find out what was floating down an Upper Peninsula river, but they think it could be diesel fuel. The possible fuel spill happened in Sault Ste. Marie and floated down the St. Mary's River and Power Canal. They believe it could be about 50 gallons of diesel fuel. Right now, the spill is not a major threat. Guardsmen say the source of the leak has been contained near a ferry docked in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario. If you see any sheen in the water, stay away from it and let the Coast Guard know.
