BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — State officials have given an estimate on how much oil was spilled from a pipeline leak in Williams County last month.

The North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality says an estimated 12,432 gallons of oil leaked from a pipeline operated by Hiland Crude about a mile northeast of McGregor on Oct. 17. The department says the oil leaked onto cropland.

Department staff have inspected the site and say they will continue to monitor remediation.
