BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Department of Health says a ruptured pipeline led to a 10,000-gallon oil spill in McKenzie County.

The leak occurred after the pipeline owned by Belle Fourche Pipeline Co. was struck by equipment Friday during excavation of the area about 18 miles south of Alexander.

Health department officials say the leak was “mostly confined” to the excavated area and has not impacted any waterway.

Officials say the spill is not a threat to public health at this time.
