Dunn county officials decided at a meeting on July 2nd that they would pursue a study that applies oil-field produced wastewater to the county’s notoriously dusty roads. Unpaved roads that are often used by the oil and gas industry produce a massive amount of dust while large trucks travel back and forth on them. The dust issue has been an ongoing problem for western North Dakota roads. The study began in April of 2011, funded by $220,000 from the North Dakota Industrial Commission.
Nadya Faulx reports:
“The commission approved the option to take an extra $93,000 left from the original study after McKenzie County didn’t use it to study brine water, road superintendent Mike Zimmerman said.”
Underground Soaking Systems Inc. will potentially include research of oil-field brine for dust control by the contract date of Oct 1.
