Army Corps Will Grant Easement for DAPL – Waives Notification Period

Water Protector Legal Collective is outraged by the U.S. Department of the Army’s notification to Congress today that it intends to grant the easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) to drill under the Missouri River at Lake Oahe in North Dakota.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ stated intention to disregard its policy of waiting 14 days after Congressional notification before granting an easement is a further slap in the face to due process of law and is one more example of the shameful disregard for treaty rights and serious environmental concerns that have plagued this project.
