Brine Leak Reaches Missouri River

A Summit Midstream brine leak has reached the Missouri River. The rupture occurred approximately eight miles north of Williston and was discovered on Jan. 6 near Blacktail Creek.

Small dykes have been set up to keep additional salt brine from flowing into the Little Muddy River.

The presence of ice has made the clean up process difficult, but Summit Midstream is working to determine the impact of the leak and will provide more information after testing is completed.
