Tribal and company officials say about 24,000 barrels of saltwater has leaked from a pipeline on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation....

     MANDAREE, N.D. (AP) - Tribal and company officials say about 24,000 barrels of saltwater has leaked from a pipeline on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.  An unknown amount has entered a bay leading to Lake Sakakawea, which provides water to communities on the reservation.
 
     Tribal and company officials say the leak near Mandaree has been isolated and drinking water is unaffected.  Yesterday officials with the reservation closed the water intake to Mandaree as a precaution.
 
     The underground pipeline is owned by Aero Pipeline LCC. The company says the leak started over the weekend and was discovered Tuesday.  Aero Pipeline is a subsidiary of Houston-based Crestwood Midstream Partners.

     Saltwater is a byproduct of oil production that's 10 to 30 times saltier than seawater.  Kris Roberts, an environmental geologist with the state health department, says there are dead trees, grasses and bushes near the leak area.
