    Look at the spill in the Kalamazoo River in Michigan. The cleanup began in the summer of 2010 it is still going on. The river cannot be dredged anymore without causing additional ecological harm so the bitumen tar balls on the bottom of the river have to be removed "manually" - a time consuming job requiring many workers.

    Any spill (and all pipelines leak) of heavy dirty bitumen is going to require plenty of crews working long hours.
