350.org on Final Easement for Dakota Access Pipeline

350.org

WASHINGTON - Within the next 24 hours, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is expected to grant the final easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline that would allow construction to proceed under the Missouri River in North Dakota. The decision is coming after the Obama administration ordered the Army Corps to withhold the final easement last year, calling for a full environmental review of the project. Shortly after taking office, Trump urged the Army Corps to scrap the environmental review process and approve the final permit.
