Crude oil, fracking water spill reported in Dunn County


Associated Press - January 7, 2020

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Officials say high winds caused a power outage that led to a produced water and oil spill in Dunn County.

The North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality was notified Monday, Jan. 6 of the spill at a salt water disposal facility operated by Hunt Oil Co. The spill happened Sunday about eight miles northwest of Halliday.

Equipment failure caused by the power outage led to tanks overflowing. Initial estimates indicated about 27,720 gallons of produced water and 15,540 gallons of crude oil overflowed the tanks.

Most of the spill was contained on site, but winds blew some of the material onto pastureland
