The Anterra spill follows a brine spill from an underground North Dakota pipeline on the weekend of July 4th. Around 1 million gallons spilled down a bluff into local waterways. The brine contains petroleum and residue from hydraulic fracturing operations. The spill occurred in a pipeline owned by the Crestwood subsidiary Arrow Pipeline LLC.
These spills are but the latest in a large and growing number of spills reinforcing the point that fossil fuels cannot be safely transported.
