North Dakota farmers fight soil contamination

One county's infertile land offers a test case of the long-term effects of wastewater spills....

Read the article here.

"Bottineau County offers an unusual, decades-long test case, since the region has a long history of contamination and a plethora of aging wells, tanks, pipelines, disposal sites and other infrastructure left from North Dakota's earlier oil booms in the 1930s, 1950s, and 1980s.  And the experiment is not over yet...."

Nothing will grow.
The crop is dying as we watch it.
