Construction on Dakota Access Pipeline Temporarily Stops

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe continues to protest pipeline

In North Dakota, work has stopped on one section of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe opposes the pipeline because the route crosses sacred sites and burial places. They are also concerned that if the pipeline ruptures, it could pollute local drinking water.

The Dakota Access pipeline would transport about 470,000 barrels of crude oil per day from western North Dakota to central Illinois. The company Energy Transfer Partners thought it had adequate approval to build the 1,172-mile-long, $3.78 billion pipeline.
