Industrial Commission approves Hettinger County salt water disposal well
BISMARCK -- A proposed salt water disposal well has been approved in rural Hettinger County, but a state regulator says he doesn't expect it will be used right away.
North Dakota's Industrial Commission voted Tuesday to grant a permit to drill the well northwest of New England.
Some neighbors near the well site have protested the project. They say it's unfair to handle oil field waste without the benefits of production. There isn't any oil drilling in the area yet.
