BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Department of Health says an oil pipeline has leaked on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.

Kris Roberts is an environmental geologist with the Department. He says they were notified of the leak around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. The pipeline is owned by Crestwood Midstream Services.

Roberts says the department isn't sure how much oil has leaked yet. A response plan is still being put together.

The leak is on the southeast side of Bear Den Bay, which is approximately 30 miles east of Watford City.
