BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Two more oil spills from the Dakota Access Pipeline occurred in March according to the state health department and another federal regulatory agency.

Eighty-four gallons spilled in Watford City on March 3 due to a leaky flange according to a report from the Department of health.

Two days later 20 gallons spilled in Mercer County. That report comes from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.

Reports from both incidents say contaminated soil and snow was removed from the area and there were no injuries to humans or wildlife.

The pipeline leaked 84 gallons of oil in South Dakota on April 4.
