As the debate continues over the Dakota Access pipeline, a lesser known oil pipeline just spilled in western North Dakota.
The Belle Fourche Pipeline leaked an undetermined amount of oil into a tributary of the Missouri River near Dickinson, the Fargo Forum reports.
The pipeline company didn’t discover the leak. Instead, “the incident was reported by a landowner who saw oil leaking from the 6-inch pipeline into the creek,” the Forum reports.
There you have it: more evidence of the regulating prowess of the state of North Dakota.
