NEW TOWN (AP) -- The Three Affiliated Tribes is getting tough on oil companies that improperly dispose of waste on the Fort Berthold Reservation in western North Dakota.

The tribe has implemented fines that start at $5,000 for negligent violations and $10,000 for willful violations and progress to $500,000 and $1 million, respectively. Companies that refuse to pay or have repeated violations could lose their license to do business on the

reservation.
