Earlier this year, the North Dakota Industrial Commission approved building an oil waste treatment plant near White Earth. Tervita Corporation, formerly CCS Midstream Inc., of Canada is seeking to build the plant at the top of the White Earth Valley. The plant would treat the waste water that oil drilling brings up and separate it into solid waste, saltwater and recoverable oil.
