The North Dakota Department of Health says a saltwater pipeline has leaked on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Department of Health says a saltwater pipeline has leaked on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.  Kris Roberts is an environmental geologist with the department. He says they were notified of the leak around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday. Crestwood Midstream Services owns the pipeline.
 
     Roberts says the department isn't sure how much saltwater has leaked, what caused the leak or when it began.  He said late Tuesday that the company is using containment berm systems but the brine is not completely contained.
 
     Attempts to reach a company spokeswoman were not immediately successful late Tuesday.  The leak is on the southeast side of Bear Den Bay, about 30 miles east of Watford City.  Saltwater is also called brine. It is a byproduct of oil production.  The Environmental Protection Agency will be on scene today.

Hovarth allegedly shot 28-year-old Derrick Spiegel outside a Williston strip club in March 2013. The trial is set to begin today.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A group of North Dakota lawmakers is suggesting legislation that would devote more oil tax money to highway corridors impacted by energy development. The draft legislation would set aside $75 million each two-year budget cycle. The proposed bill would give priority to U.S. 85, the main north-south highway in western North Dakota's oil patch.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The U.S. Department of the Interior is giving about $400,000 to North Dakota for conservation and outdoor recreation projects. The money comes from the department's Land and Water Conservation Fund, which collects money from federal oil and gas leases on the Outer Continental Shelf. It's up to the state to decide how to disperse the funding.

     DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - The president of the Dickinson Catholic Schools says he's focusing on rebuilding Trinity High School for now, but would like to see whoever burned part of it down brought to justice someday. President Steve Glasser says construction crews are on track to reopen the school by the start of the 2014 academic year.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Residents of the Dakotas may be noticing hazy skies this week as smoke from wildfires in Canada's Northwest Territories has made its way south to the U.S.
 
     Adam Jones with the National Weather Service in Bismarck says strong northwestern winds have brought the smoke to North Dakota and South Dakota. The Northwest territories are about approximately 1,000 miles northwest of Bismarck.
 
     Jones says because the wildfires are so big, large amounts of smoke have been traveling high into the atmosphere. The upper layers of the atmosphere have strong winds that can carry the smoke long distances.  The meteorologist expected the haze to last through today.
