NDSU Extension hosting brine spill discussions

NDSU Extension
Farm Forum

Landowners will have an opportunity to discuss their concerns and experiences with brine spills during a series of informal meetings the North Dakota State University Extension Service is hosting.

These meetings are open to all landowners interested in talking about brine spills. The focus of the discussions is pipelines.

Kevin Connors, the pipeline program supervisor with the North Dakota Department of Mineral Resources, will attend the discussions. The goal of these meetings is for landowners to share information and voice their concerns.
