Briefs — DAPL Review

In a court-ordered review, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers concluded that the Dakota Access Pipeline poses “no significant potential impact” to nearby hunting and fishing resources, and its crossing of the Missouri River does not create a “disproportionately high and adverse” risk to nearby Native American tribes, some of whom oppose the $3.8 billion, 1,200-mile crude oil pipeline. A federal judge ordered the review in June 2017, but allowed the pipeline to continue operations.
