Oil Spill Near Alexander

Posted: Updated:
The Department of Health tells us an oil spill occurred ten miles south of Alexander after a pipeline trencher accidentally damaged a Belle Fourche Pipeline in McKenzie County, causing almost 300 barrels of oil to escape. The good news is most of the oil stayed in the trench, and none of it ran into any bodies of water. All of the liquid oil has been recovered and berms have been put up just in case it rains. Crews are working to repair the pipeline.
