TODAY'S THOUGHT

If we who follow Jesus are anything at all, we are people of good news. What spectacular irony and victory for the prince of darkness if he could get us in droves to believe there only ever be bad news this side of heaven. Let not our hearts grow numb. Jesus is alive and rules!

Ward County is preparing to use produced water from the oil field to help control dust on some gravel roads....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Ward County is preparing to use produced water from the oil field to help control dust on some gravel roads. The Minot Daily News reports that the Ward County Commission approved Highway Engineer Dana Larsen's request Tuesday to purchase a brine storage tank and distribution equipment.
 
     Brine is water trapped in underground formations that's brought to the surface during oil and gas production. The produced water contains magnesium and calcium chlorides, which are commonly used in dust control.

    The county is looking to obtain produced water from a neighboring county's well that the state Health Department says has safe water when used appropriately. Larsen hopes to get the brine facilities in place this year so that the county could start using the produced water next year.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Health Department is warning residents to avoid blue-green algae that can develop in bodies of water.  Hot summer weather contributes to the production of the algae that's also known as cyanobacteria. People and animals who ingest affected water can get sick and even die. There's no known antidote for toxins blue-green algae can produce.
 
     People are urged to avoid water that looks discolored or scummy or has a foul odor. Mike Ell of the department's Division of Water Quality says algae blooms are most common in the late summer in North Dakota.

     BISMARCK, N.D. - Information about North Dakota's public water systems is available in the newly released 2017 Drinking Water Compliance Report prepared by the North Dakota Department of Health.

     north Dakota public water systems maintain an excellent Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) compliance record with 99 percent of public water systems meeting all health-based standards.  All Community Water Systems have undergone a sanitary survey within the past three years. In 2017, the department issued certificates of compliance to 273 public water systems.

     "The purpose of the annual report is to improve consumer awareness of drinking water compliance issues," said Greg Wavra, administrator of the department's Drinking Water Program. "People served by systems with Safe Drinking Water Act violations in 2017 should have been informed of those violations by their water suppliers."

     All SDWA violations incurred in North Dakota in 2017 are included in the report. Also listed are violations recorded in 2018 based on 2017 monitoring data. "It's important to understand that the majority of violations referred to in the 2017 report have been resolved," Wavra said. "It is a significant challenge for public water systems and states to meet the ever-increasing number of requirements of the SDWA."

     HELENA, Mont. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Jon Tester is giving President Donald Trump a tongue-in-cheek welcome to Montana by taking out a full-page ad in 14 newspapers thanking the president for signing 16 bills that the Democrat sponsored or co-sponsored. Trump is holding a rally today in Great Falls to campaign for Tester's Republican challenger, State Auditor Matt Rosendale.

    Tester's ad runs today in the Great Falls Tribune and other papers across northern and eastern Montana. It says, "Welcome to Montana, and thank you President Trump for supporting Jon's legislation to help veterans and first responders, hold the VA accountable, and get rid of waste, fraud and abuse in the federal government." The Tester campaign also plans to run a radio ad across the state touting his bills that Trump has signed.
