North Dakota Energy Industry Waste Coalition and Dakota Resource Council leaders say they are pleased state officials are beginning efforts to slow down the illegal dumping of the cancer causing filter socks. But Dar- rell Dorgan and Linda Weiss say much of Northwestern North Dakota has reached the point of being an environ- i'tiarzltal' tlisaset' area, arid fast hadin for superfund status. One issue that members from both the NDEIWC and DRC say there is a problem with is a continued lack of record keeping, background checks or reporting for the filter socks that have been used. There is still no way of knowing when cancer causing filter socks and other waste is accounted for and that it hasn't been illegally dumped in a dumpster near a school, in a ditch or in an area close to drinking water. "State officials have had years to work on these issues," said Weiss, the DRC chairperson from Belfield, ND. "So far, they haven't seemed to take risks to people living here very seri- ously." In the summer of 2013, mem- bers from both DRC and NDEIWC met with North Dakota Health Depart- ment leaders to talk about the illegal dumping of radioactive waste in the Bakken. The groups recommended that filter socks used by the oil industry would be issued, with a serial number, by the State of North Dakota. After every filter sock would be accounted for, the company would get more filter Socks tO' operate: .................... Since then, regulators of the oil in- dustry have acknowledged that there is a problem. Yesterday, Health Depart- ment officials told the Interim Energy Development and Transmission Com- mittee that the department is studying record keeping and tracking radioac- tive waste. Weiss said, "In the ,;an- time, hundreds of the cancer causing socks have been found, tnousands , more are unaccounted for and existing laws still aren't being enforced, crimi- Wolford • Phone 583-2843 JaimeandNathan : Fridays and Saturdays €o' 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Ribeye: $18 • Tendlrloin: $22 wailable Manday-Fn'dafl 9:oo-11:oo am & 1:oo-4:oo p.m. ,(at" walk-in patients. misted Dunsetth Clime provider,..

She said, "State officials appear to be too timid to make sure there are consequences to companies for ille- gally dumping this hazardous waste." NDEIWC Chair Darrell Dorgan of Bismarck says a new study by the Ar- gonne National Laboratories on the cancer causing radioactive and toxic waste is expected shortly. The study will be used to establish new guide- lines, but Dorgan notes, "Oil industry officials and state officials are already expressing confidence radioactive lev- els will be raised dramatically in North Dakota and I have serious doubts that any new regulations will be enforced. Frankly, the Health Department does- n't have enough people to do the job." He continued, "The job of the Health Department is to protect the health and welfare of those who live here, but they appear more concerned with oil industry profits." "Before the Bakken oil boom started, the oil industry and state offi- cials knew they would need t6 dispose the radioactive waste," Dorgan said. "But, companies didn't put that in their business plans and state leaders didn't think about addressing it in a responsi- ble way. Now they come to us and ask us to give up on the health and safety of where we live." We offer 3 grades of gasoline, diesel fuel & propane cylinder change.
