BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A damaged injection line has caused a spill of about 8,400 gallons of a mixture of saltwater and oil in Bottineau County.

The North Dakota Department of Health says the spill happened Wednesday about 3 1/2 miles north of Mohall.

A representative of Texas-based Enduro Operating LLC, which operates the line, wasn’t immediately available to comment.

Initial estimates show about 8,400 gallons of what’s known as produced water, a mixture of saltwater and oil that can contain drilling chemicals, was released onto a pasture.

The department says no surface water has been impacted at this time. The Health Department says it will work with the company on plans for remediation.
