Industry, tribe react to Dakota Access appeals hearing

Industry, tribe react to Dakota Access appeals hearing

"Millions of people across the country and world, more than 300 federally-recognized tribes, members of Congress and dozens of city governments across the country stand with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline", Archambault said in a statement after the court postponed a decision, leaving the temporary injunction in place.

Commission chairwoman Julie Fedorchak said the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Administration gave the PSC an update Tuesday on its ongoing inspections of the pipeline welds, coatings and other aspects of construction.

At stake is whether the Dakota Access Pipeline will be allowed to traverse what many Native American groups say are sacred ancestral lands.

The project came under national scrutiny due to concerns of the Standing Rock Sioux, who according to CNN filed a complaint in federal court alleging that "the construction and operation of the pipeline. threatens the Tribe's environmental and economic well-being, and would damage and destroy sites of great historic, religious, and cultural significance to the Tribe".

The pipeline company and the Corps argued in court documents that they followed a standard review process.

Rounds says in the case of Standing Rock Indian Reservation residents, when they went through and wanted the court to take a second look at the issue, they had every right to lock in and ask for that.

The $3.8 billion pipeline is being developed by Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners.

Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault said after the hearing that 135 anti-pipeline demonstrators have been arrested so far, and that law enforcement officers are "heightening the danger" by using anti-riot gear.

The tribe is disputing a report by state archaeologists who found that earthwork on a segment of the pipeline route September 3 did not destroy sacred sites, after Dakota Access refused to allow tribal participation in that survey. "The approval of this pipeline by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is a violation of our treaty rights and we will not stop fighting until our lands, people, water and sacred places are permanently protected".

Five trade unions are pushing President Obama to move forward with the Dakota Access pipeline.
