State Officials Monitor Pipeline Spill In Belfield

State officials are monitoring a pipeline leak in Billings County.

Two thousand gallons of saltwater and oil spilled at a site operated by White Rock Oil and Gas eighteen miles northwest of Belfield.

State officials will remain on site until they can determine the long–term environmental impacts of the spill.
