The Keystone pipeline has spilled hundreds of thousands of gallons of crude oil into North Dakota this week, The New York Times reports.

The pipeline has leaked roughly 383,000 gallons of crude oil, impacting an estimated half-acre of wetland, according to state environmental regulators.

“The leak has since been contained but is one of the larger spills in the state,” Karl Rockeman, the director of the state Department of Environmental Quality’s division of water quality, told The Times.
