That Dakota Access Pipeline leak isn't the builder's only problem
Opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline warned this would happen. They probably didn’t expect it to come so soon, however.
The newly completed conduit, which cuts across a reservoir relied on by members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, leaked 84 gallons of crude oil in South Dakota in early April, recent media reports indicate.
Members of the tribe, who fought hard to block part of the pipeline’s construction, said the relatively small spill bolsters their argument that Dakota Access threatens their water supplies and livelihoods.
