ND Supreme Court Says County was Preempted from Vetoing Commission’s Approval of a Location for an Oil and Gas Waste Treating Plant

The Environmental Driven Solutions, LLC (“EDS”) received a permit from the Commission for a waste oil treating plant in Dunn County, which allowed EDS “to recycle and treat waste crude oil obtained from drilling operations, pit oil, swab oil, acid oil, tank bottoms, oil spills, pipeline breaks, skim oil from saltwater disposal tanks, and other waste crude oil related to oil and gas exploration and production.” After EDS began constructing the treating plant, the County issued notices of “violation and order to abate,” claiming the treating plant could not be constructed on the site because the property was zoned “Rural Preservation,” and “Salt Water Storage Tank & similar facilities” were not an “allowed use.” EDS then applied to the County to rezone the property, but the County denied the application because its Land Development Code required 120 acres to rezone and EDS’s property comprised only 118.58 acres. 259 more words
