Kalamazoo River

Six inches of rain fell in the days after the Enbridge pipeline spill, raising Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River, pictured here, into "a roiling brown torrent that overflowed its banks by several feet," according to the seven-month investigation conducted by InsideClimate News, a nonprofit news organization focused on climate change and energy issues. Talmadge Creek, which is usually five to six feet wide and a foot deep, stretched 100-feet wide after the downpour.

Oiled sections of the Kalamazoo River reopened to the public in June -- 23 months after the spill.
