Williston, ND (WDAY TV) - If you live in oil country, be sure to do a double take at what you're picking out of road ditches this Spring.

A Dunn County Sheriff's Deputy found a dirty filter sock in a roadside ditch last week.

Authorities say the sock was not radioactive;however, there could be other dangerous chemicals on it.

Filter socks are a common byproduct of the oil industry, and can contain naturally occurring radioactive material.
