Blacktail spill appears ‘significant’

Crews dig up land near a pipeline spill close to Blacktail Lake just outside of Williston city limits.

WILLISTON — Brine from a leak in a saltwater disposal line in Williams County has reached the Missouri River, the North Dakota Department of Health said Thursday.

Summit Midstream owns the line but it's operated by subsidiary Meadowlark Midstream Co.
