Submission + - Michigan oil spill. (epa.gov)

Script Cat writes: An oil pipeline has broken near Battle creak Michigan and poured one million gallons of oil into the Kalamazoo river watershed[1].
Does anyone here on Slashdot know how a spill like this scales? How big is this spill in terms of effect on the rivers and streams?
Will there be any long term effect on the great lakes?
Is there a general lack of maintenance or reinvestment into the oil infrastructure in general?
