Thanks to the courageous opposition of Indigenous communities, the project was halted for a full review last fall. Every comment submitted in support of the review builds the legal case against Trump’s reckless attempt to fast-track the pipeline.
The deadline for review is February 20th. Submit your comment now and stand up to Trump’s pipeline plan.
The 1,168-mile Dakota Access Pipeline, if completed, would carry 450,000 barrels of fracked oil every day through four states, cutting through communities, farms, sensitive natural areas, wildlife habitat, and tribal lands like the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s ancestral lands. It would also cross under the Missouri River just upstream of the Tribe’s drinking water supply, where a spill would mean a serious threat to the Tribe’s health, culture, and way of life.
It should not be approved, and defending the Environmental Impact Statement is the next crucial step in that direction.
