Thousands of acres in North Dakota have been contaminated & deadened, sterilized by saltwater chemical spills, through decades of careless oil production.
The aftermath of big oil has destroyed rich farmland and wildlife sanctuaries in western North Dakota. It effects us all. Without a diversity of healthy plants creating oxygen, global warming and climate change continues to significantly increase. The contamination must stop, the soil needs to be renewed to health again. We are the Salted Lands & Water Council, a nonprofit working to move industry and government to action. Let's revive the Dead Lands of North Dakota!
