Nearly 1.7K gallons of brine spill in Williams County

BISMARCK, N.D. — The North Dakota Department of Health says it was notified that about 1,680 gallons of salt water have spilled in Williams County.

The department announced Monday that the brine spill was the result of a truck overflow about seven miles west of Williston. The spill affected a nearby creek, and the impact of its water quality is still being investigated.

The department says it’s working on a remediation plan with Golden Eagle Trucking, which is responsible for the spill.
