BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - A pipeline located near Watford City that carries brine has leaked roughly 850 barrels.

The leak was first discovered on Monday by the pipeline’s operator, Tallgrass Energy, and then reported to the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality.

The cause of the leak was due to a pipeline break that happened six miles south of Watford City. The spill mostly impacts private property.

The state’s environmental department is continuing to investigate the damage and monitor the cleanup.
