The North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality was recently notified of a produced water spill at a pipeline operated by Tallgrass Energy in McKenzie County.
The incident occurred about one mile northeast of Arnegard on Thursday, Sept. 9, and was reported the same day. Tallgrass Energy estimates the pipeline released approximately 1,100 barrels of produced water, which impacted a wheat field. The wheat field had been harvested at the time of the release.
Personnel from the NDDEQ are inspecting the site and will continue to monitor the investigation and remediation.
