State regulators get 11K comments on proposed refinery near Theodore Roosevelt NP

BISMARCK — North Dakota environmental regulators expect to decide whether to issue an air quality permit to an oil refinery near Theodore Roosevelt National Park in a couple of months after receiving thousands of public comments that mostly opposed the project through the Friday, Jan. 26, deadline.

The state Department of Health received roughly 11,000 comments by email on the Davis Refinery, although a "vast majority" say the same thing, said Terry O'Clair, the director of the department's air quality division. A spokeswoman for the National Parks Conservation Association, an opponent of the refinery’s location, said they had more than 10,400 people send a letter on the issue but wasn’t sure how many deviated from the provided text.
