People have been caught nearly 150 times in the past year attempting to illegally dump loads of oil field waste - much of it radioactive - at two of the biggest landfills in western North Dakota, records obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press show. None of the incidents resulted in fines or other sanctions from the state, and the most regulators required was that offenders promise to properly dispose of the waste, officials said.
Darrell Dorgan lost count of the number of mounted deer heads he's been offered for the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame when that number reached 45 a few years ago.
Dorgan, the member of the citizen group, said the state should have had such rules in place long before the explosion of oil activity began a few years ago.
"The state has no idea where this stuff is and what's happening to it," said Darrell Dorgan, a member of the North Dakota Energy Industry Waste Coalition, a newly formed watchdog group that is attempting to document illegal oilfield waste dumping. "It's being scattered all across western North Dakota."
