DICKINSON The North Dakota Department of Health reported Thursday that it was notified of a pipline leak at a well pad owned by C12 Energy near N.D. Highway 22, just north of Dickinson.

About 148 barrels of brine flowed off the well pad and through a ditch onto newly annexed land on the north side of Dickinson.
