Drinking Water Safe After Oil Spill

Testing has concluded that Williston’s drinking water is safe following an oil spill in the Yellowstone River in Montana.

North Dakota’s Health Department says low levels of contaminants were detected in the city’s water but it’s unclear where they came from.

A ruptured Bridger pipeline spilled 40,000 gallons of oil into the river near Glendive, Montana, last Saturday.

Elevated levels of cancer-causing benzene were found in Glendive’s water supply.

The tap water has since been deemed safe.
