"We do not need new laws. We need enforcement of the laws already on the books. One of the speakers at the meeting, Darrell Dorgan, put it best. The purpose of the Health Department is to protect the health and welfare of North Dakota's citizens, not to maximize the profits of the oil industry."

Enforcement sounds good.

That's the the oil companies for ya, they don't care about ND. They care about how much money they can remove from the ground and how many tax breaks the can lay on the backs of the people of ND. It's cheaper to the oil companies to dump radioactive waste in Williston and pay the fine, if the get caught, they it is to truck it to CO. These are the same types of people that let their dogs mess on your yard so they don't have to clean it up. ND better save their pennies to clean up its lands after the oil companies walk away.

This issue is one happening all around the country and the world. Our leaders are quick to point out the benefits of Nuclear Power without properly addressing the dangers. There is hope. After taking a permaculture course last summer, I learned there are scientists researching the benefits of phytoremdiation ... Plant based soil and water clean up. It may be the way to go for dealing with superfund sites etc. now, to get the states on board ... Guess a remediation clean up team needs to be established first.
