DETROIT (WKZO) -- As BP works to clean an oil spill in southern Lake Michigan, Senator Debbie Stabenow says she will continue to monitor the situation.  The spill, discovered on Monday, dumped an estimated 500-gallons of crude oil from the company's Whiting Refinery in northwest Indiana.

"This just underscores the critical importance of protecting our Great Lakes," says Stabenow, "and reminds us of the impact a disaster of this nature can have on our state's economy and way of life."
