Last Thursday, an oil spill was discovered in the Grand River near Old Town in Lansing. As crews continue to clean it up, city officials are planning their next moves. Yesterday, Lansing mayor Virg Bernero held a news conference to give an update on the spill.

Environmental groups say this is not the first time oil has spilled into the Grand River in Lansing. Current State speaks with Julie Powers, executive director of the Mid-Michigan Environmental Action Council. She attended yesterday’s news conference with Mayor Bernero.
