BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Health Department says about 168,000 gallons water used to enhance oil recovery has leaked from a pipeline in southwest North Dakota.

Health officials announced the spill late Friday afternoon. They say the spill was reported on Wednesday at an oil well about six miles south of Marmarth in Bowman County.

Officials say the water is high in dissolved solids and minerals. They say the spill leaked into a drainage.

Officials say the well is owned by Denbury Onshore.

The Health Department says it is responding and is working with the company on remediation plans.
