BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators will continue to pursue $950,000 in fines against a trucking company accused of illegally dumping saltwater on a Williams County road in 2014.

The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1ScYjLD ) reports the North Dakota Industrial Commission voted unanimously on Wednesday to move forward with its complaint against Wyoming-based Black Hills Trucking Inc.

An administrative law judge last month ruled the Industrial Commission did not have jurisdiction because the incident occurred on a public road. The judge says jurisdiction belonged to the state Department of Health.

Regulators say the case now likely is headed to district court.

The company is accused of illegally dumping saltwater near Tioga in February and March 2014. Regulators sought the fines after an inspector witnessed illegal dumping.
