     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota American Indian tribe no longer wants fiberglass-based pipelines on its reservation after recent spills. Last month, a pipeline spilled more than 785 barrels of brine in a pasture on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. The spill occurred on a segment of pipeline that was scheduled to be replaced.

    The pipeline is made of a material called Fiberspar LinePipe. That's the same fiberglass-reinforced material tied to two of the largest brine spills in North Dakota history.

    Three Affiliated Tribes Pipeline Authority Travis Hallam tells The Bismarck Tribune the tribe's business council is no longer allowing fiberglass-based materials for new pipelines that carry produced water, a waste byproduct of oil production.

    A spokesman for Fiberspar LinePipe says the pipeline material is safe if installed according to the manufacturer's guidelines.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Norway-based manufacturer and a Scandinavian technology company have been teaming up with a North Dakota drone operation to service the region's utility and oil and gas customers.

    The Minot Daily News reports that Robot Aviation, a manufacturing company based in Poland, and eSmart, a software company founded in Norway, are partnering with SkySkopes. The drone-piloting company is based in Grand Forks but recently opened an office in Minot. The three businesses are aiming to provide customers with the hardware, software and operators to deliver unmanned aerial technology.

    ESmart joined forces with SkySkopes after Hurricane Irma in Florida to do damage assessments in the Jacksonville area for JEA, the eighth largest municipal electric company in the country.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Prosecutors in Grand Forks County are considering whether to file charges in a July crash between a van and semitrailer that killed three people and injured six others. Grand Forks State's Attorney David Jones says his office needs to review cell phone records to complete the investigation before making a charging decision, WDAY-TV reported Saturday.
 
     Investigators say the July 18 crash on Highway 2 just west of Grand Forks happened when a van was struck by a semitrailer as the van was turning around on the highway. Three of the van's nine passengers died and the six others were injured. Authorities say the van's passengers worked at Grand Forks Air Force Base through a federal program that helps employ workers with disabilities.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot City Council's Animal Nuisance Committee is considering ways to reduce over-populated wildlife to tolerable levels as determined by the community. The Minot Daily News reports that at a Sept. 20 meeting with the committee the North Dakota Game & Fish Department suggested some temporary solutions to help reduce the wildlife population that include hunting and temporary, portable fencing.
 
     North Dakota Game & Fish Outreach Biologist Greg Gullickson says more than 20 communities in the state are allowing some form of legalized hunting in the city limits. In Minot, anyone with a bow hunter's license is able to hunt. The committee is focusing its attention on reducing the population of turkey, deer, geese, raccoons and rabbits. It's expected to meet again in October.
