Daunting Toxic Spills In Western North Dakota PDF Print E-mail

Check out this interactive map of all the oil and poison water spills that have happened and been disclosed in Western North Dakota over the past 13 years. You can zoom in and out on the map; I use the wheel-roller thingy on my mouse to zoom in and out. If you use your mouse to hover over the dots, you'll get a little information on each spill.  If you click on a dot, you'll get even more information.  Click on the link in the information box, and get even more information. 

Here's a screen grab from the map, to give you a little sample. 


Notice how close some of these spills are to Lake Sakakawea. Some are even IN the lake. Many are near tributaries to the lake and river.

If you live in Williston, Bismarck, Mandan or pretty much any other city along the lake or river, your drinking water likely comes from that water.

Kill some time poking around on the map while Wayne Stenehjem's oil company buddies kill the fish in our lakes. And us.
