BISMARCK, N.D. -- State health officials are recommending
that North Dakota's Transportation Department continue a ban on using
oil well wastewater as a road deicer.
The Health Department says in a report that more study needs to be
done on the salty wastewater.
Crews used the wastewater to melt ice and snow on North Dakota
roads for decades. The practice was stopped in February, after Health
Department officials learned of it from The Associated Press.
