Department Searches For Noonan Station Owner

Posted: Updated:

The State Health Department has a week to find the owner of the gas station in Noonan that contains hundreds of radioactive oil socks, before hiring a contractor to cleanup the mess.

The department sent a letter to the owner of the building, who is a fugitive, and to his mother who has been paying the property taxes on the building. The building has been roped off with caution tape.

"We are notifying the official owner at their address of record and the person that has been paying the property taxes that they need to contact the Health Department to discuss proper cleanup at the site. If we don't hear from them shortly, we will then look into alternatives on hiring other contractors through the oil and gas program," says Scott Radig, North Dakota Waste Management.

The oil and gas program's reclamation fund receives fees from oil companies throughout the year. It can be used for reclaiming abandoned wells. Radig says it can also be used to clean illegal dump sites.
