    THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE DOES NOT CROSS LAND OWNED BY THE STANDING ROCK SIOUX.

    THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE DOES NOT CROSS LAND OWNED BY THE STANDING ROCK SIOUX.



    No part of the pipeline will be installed on the Standing Rock reservation.

    The part of the project that needs the approval of the Army Corps of Engineers is a sliver of 1,000 feet of federal land – not Standing Rock land – that is part of its crossing beneath Lake Oahe. This part of the pipeline would be tunneled using state of the art Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) through soil nearly 100 feet below the bottom of the lake. This is about 20 times deeper than an existing pipeline that was installed beneath the same lake in 1982 and has operated safely for about 35 years.

    In fact, eight pipelines currently pass below Lake Oahe, as well as one high-energy electrical system.

    Protesters rallied for months against plans to route the $3.8 billion pipeline beneath Lake Oahe near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, saying it threatened water resources and sacred Native American sites.

    CANNON BALL, N.D. (Reuters) - Dump trucks and heavy machinery rolled into the protest camp near the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline on Monday, and crews began filling large dumpsters with garbage that has accumulated, much of it now buried under snow.


    The clean-up marked cooperation among authorities and camp organizers. The decision to clean the site, where a few hundred protesters remain, was made on Sunday by state and local officials and members of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe.


    Those involved said it was not an effort to destroy the camp, which sits on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers land, but a move to prevent waste contaminating water sources.


    "I’m not going to run people’s camps over.

    I’m not going to take anyone’s property or do anything like that," Hans Youngbird Bradley, a construction contractor from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe said during the meeting.


    There are dozens of abandoned cars and structures as well as waste at the camp.


    “It is paramount for public safety, and to prevent an environmental disaster, that the camps be cleared prior to a potential spring flood,”
    said North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, a Republican who supports the completion of the pipeline, in a statement.


    Land is being leased on the Standing Rock Reservation for protesters who wish to remain in the area.


    Protesters rallied for months against plans to route the $3.8 billion pipeline beneath Lake Oahe near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, saying it threatened water resources and sacred Native American sites.


    At one point, nearly 10,000 people had flocked to the site. But the number dwindled to several hundred after the Standing Rock Sioux asked activists to leave when a permit to drill under the lake was denied in December.


    President Donald Trump signed an executive order last week to speed up the completion of the project, dealing a blow to protesters.

    Cleanup Begins at Dakota Access Pipeline Protest Encampment


    • By BLAKE NICHOLSON, ASSOCIATED PRESS

    BISMARCK, N.D. — Jan 31, 2017, 4:56 PM ET

    This Monday, Jan. 30, 2017, photo from video provided by KXMB in Bismarck, N.D., shows cleanup beginning at a North Dakota encampment near Cannon Ball where Dakota Access oil pipeline opponents have protested for months. The Standing Rock Sioux has organized the cleanup with the help of the Thunder Valley Community Development Corp. from South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation, which has arranged for heavy equipment including front-end loaders, dump trucks and skid-steer loaders.

    Cleanup of a North Dakota encampment where opponents of the Dakota Access oil pipeline stayed for months to protest the $3.8 billion project is expected to take weeks, a leader of the tribe that organized the protest said Tuesday.

    The Standing Rock Sioux hopes to complete the work before any spring floodwaters from the Cannonball River can wash debris into the Missouri River — the very waterway pipeline opponents are working to protect. The camp has seen an exodus in recent weeks due to winter weather, pipeline work being stalled and the tribe's recent call for people to leave.


    Protesters have left behind not just trash, but tents and even cars.


    "There's more than anticipated, and it's under a lot of snow," Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault said. "I wouldn't say it's going to get done in days; it's going to take weeks."


    The camp is close to where the Cannonball River flows into the Missouri, a water source for millions of people, including the tribe. Hundreds and sometimes thousands of people have camped there since August to protest a pipeline that they worry will threaten drinking water and Native American cultural sites.


    The four-state, 1,200-mile pipeline would skirt the tribe's reservation as it carries North Dakota oil through the Dakotas and Iowa to a shipping point in Illinois. Texas-based developer Energy Transfer Partners says the pipeline is safe.


    Standing Rock's environmental protection agency organized the camp cleanup with the help of the Thunder Valley Community Development Corp. from South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation, which has arranged for heavy equipment including front-end loaders, dump trucks and skid-steer loaders.


    "We'll be here eight to 10 hours a day all week. Then we'll reassess the situation," returning next week if necessary, said Nick Tilsen, Thunder Valley's executive director.


    People who still have not left the camp are helping, bringing the total on the job to about 100, said Tilsen, who is among the workers. Cost of the cleanup isn't yet known, but the tribe will use money from the $6 million in donations it has received to support its pipeline fight, Archambault said.


    The tribe hasn't asked for help from the state or Morton County.


    Republican Gov. Doug Burgum, who has traveled to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation twice in the past week to be briefed about the situation, issued a statement saying the cleanup is "an important step toward addressing the safety and environmental risks posed by imminent flooding."


    Minor flooding of the Cannonball River is almost certain this spring in the camp area, according to the National Weather Service's first flood outlook of the season, issued Friday. The next outlook, on Feb. 16, is expected to provide a clearer picture of potential flooding.
