If confirmed, Native American site may delay $3.8B pipeline


DES MOINES — Discovery of an archaeological site that may have cultural significance to Native Americans could delay construction of a $3.8 billion oil pipeline further if government officials require the route to be moved.

Houston-based Dakota Access LLC wants to build the pipeline — designed to carry a half-million barrels of oil per day — from northwest North Dakota to a storage facility in south-central Illinois. Construction has begun in North Dakota, South Dakota and Illinois, but the Iowa Utilities Board has not authorized work to begin.
