Impact of a Spill on the Keystone XL Pipeline

Cornell’s Global Labor Institute has released a second report about the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Although a comprehensive spills risk assessment for the pipeline hasn’t been conducted, authors Lara Skinner and Sean Sweeney used economic data and interviews to estimate the potential impacts in the six states along the proposed route, and describe how the Kalamazoo River spill in 2010-to date the largest tar sands oil spill in the U.S.-caused significant economic damage.
