Eco Watch - A six-inch crude oil pipeline operated by Belle Fourche Pipeline Company in western North Dakota was shut down following discovery of a leak on Monday. The amount of the spill was not immediately known, but oil has leaked into the Ash Coulee Creek in Billings County.
The site of the spill is about 200 miles from the
camp where members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and their
supporters have been protesting the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
