WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Health Department has cited a Montana company for dumping 400,000 gallons of raw sewage on fields in northwestern North Dakota over several months.

Hurley Enterprises could face thousands of dollars in penalties per day until cleanup is complete. That has yet to be determined.

State environmental health chief Dave Glatt tells The Williston Herald that there is no reason to believe there is a widespread public health threat. He says the company is cooperating.

The Fairview, Mont., company says it is working with the Health Department to resolve the matter, and also working to educate its drivers.
