Federal regulators investigate Sacagawea Pipeline


NEW TOWN, N.D. — Federal pipeline regulators will be in North Dakota this week investigating complaints about an oil pipeline recently installed under Lake Sakakawea.

Personnel from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration are investigating claims from former crew members on the Sacagawea Pipeline that the coating of the pipe was not properly inspected before it was installed under the lake.

The federal agency is expected to conduct interviews in North Dakota this week and investigate the complaints. The owner of the pipeline contracting company has said the claims are false accusations made by workers who were fired.
