Refinery near Theodore Roosevelt NP clears major hurdle as court upholds state air quality permit

BISMARCK, N.D. — A North Dakota judge has upheld a state permit allowing construction to begin on an oil refinery near Theodore Roosevelt National Park, upsetting environmental groups hoping to stop the project.


Judge Dann Greenwood ruled that the state Health Department has effectively supported its position that the $800 million Davis Refinery will not be a major source of pollution that will negatively impact the park just 3 miles (5 kilometers) away.
