ND could fine truck company more than $1M

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota officials say a Wyoming-based trucking company working in the state could face fines of more than $1 million for operating without a license and illegally dumping saltwater, a byproduct of oil production.

The state's health and mineral resources departments announced the possible fines Tuesday.

A Health Department official says Black Hills Trucking Inc. could be fined up to $1,000 for every day it operated without a license. He says it hasn't had a license since 2008.

The Department of Mineral Resources says it is seeking maximum penalties of more than $950,000 from the company for illegally dumping saltwater on a Williams County road.

The company didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.

The Attorney General's office has filed criminal charges against one of the company's drivers for illegal dumping.
