Health department investigates Bismarck storm-sewer discharge
BISMARCK — The North Dakota Department of Health is investigating a report of storm-sewer discharge in Bismarck.
The drainage leads to Hay Creek, but the department said in a statement that it was unclear whether the discharge had reached the creek.
Samples of the discharge were being analyzed Saturday at the health department’s laboratory in Bismarck.
Officials traced the source of the discharge to a construction site where a Courtyard by Marriott hotel is being built. Health Department and City of Bismarck officials have notified TMI Hospitality, the owners of the hotel and are working to prevent further leakage at the site.
