USA army told to pave way for disputed Dakota pipeline

  • Dakota Access oil pipeline that would stretch from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to Illinois. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it is beginning a review for final approval of the pro

Representatives from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe coordinated with the sheriff's office to collect their teepee hides from the camp site and return them to the reservation.

Our discussion comes almost two months since a federal agency effectively put the brakes on the DAPL pipeline, saying it would launch a lengthier environmental review.

"I have received word the Department of Defense is granting the easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline and Congressional notification is imminent", he said. According to Reuters, Trump has a personal stake in Energy Transfer Partners, the company building the DAPL.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it will install rapid-deployable, mobile gauges on the river near Solen and on the N.D. Highway 1806 river bridge directly adjacent to where hundreds remain camped in opposition to the pipeline construction. However, as one of his first acts as POTUS, Donald Trump ordered that the pipeline could be completed as planned. Last week, Trump signed two executive orders reviving both the Dakota Access and the Keystone pipelines.

The easement will allow the project to cross beneath the Missouri River. "It can and will be built with the necessary safety features to protect the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and others downstream". The 1,172-mile, four-state crude oil pipeline is nearly finished, except for a section under Lake Oahe, just upstream of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe reservation, that's been the focus of the massive protests in recent months.

In a statement to NBC News, Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault II said granting an easement now would effectively "abandon the EIS" and would amount "to a wholly unexplained and arbitrary change based on the President's personal views".

"We stand ready to fight this battle against corporate interest superseding government procedure and the health and wellbeing of millions of Americans".

Standing Rock and its allies have protested in North Dakota for months, standing in the path of the pipeline during peaceful demonstrations and clashes that turned violent.

"After repeated warnings to vacate a camp being illegally set up on private property in southern Morton County, south of Backwater Bridge, approximately 76 members of a rogue group of protesters were arrested by law enforcement officials today", the Morton County Sheriff's Department said in a press release.

"President Trump has proven to be a man of action and I am grateful for his commitment to this", Cramer said. It has vowed to fight on, in the courts. The following day, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers denied the easement. Camp organizers also initiated a clean-up effort this week to prevent waste left behind by the protesters from contaminating nearby water sources.
