North Dakota tribe waits for EPA on oil refinery
The Environmental Protection Agency plans to issue a final environmental impact statement on a oil refinery for the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation of North Dakota.

The tribe wants to build a $250 million refinery on 450 acres on the Fort Berthold Reservation. It would be the first new oil refinery in the nation in more than 30 years.

A regional EPA official said the final EIS is due in three months.
