Department Of Health Reports Spill On Sand Creek

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota Department of Health reported a petroleum product spill on Sand Creek in McKenzie County.

Officials have not been able to identify the product, but it appears to be associated with a pipeline leak and may involve fluid associated with natural gas or crude oil.

It is estimated 10 barrels of the product spilled at the site, with 10 to 20 gallons reaching the water. Sand Creek drains into Lake Sakakawea, and the fluid is located approximately 13 miles from the lake.

Inspectors were on site today. There are multiple pipelines that cross the area, and crews will continue to look for the spill's source.

Precautions are being taken to keep the spill away from Lake Sakakawea.
