Dakota Access fighting fine from ND regulators


BISMARCK – Dakota Access LLC is fighting a $15,000 proposed fine from the North Dakota Public Service Commission, arguing the company’s delay in notifying regulators about artifacts found in the pipeline route was not a “willful violation.”

Attorneys for the pipeline company have filed a motion to dismiss a complaint by the Public Service Commission that alleges Dakota Access violated conditions of its permit.

The pipeline company discovered four stone cairns and other artifacts during construction in Morton County on Oct. 17. Dakota Access notified the State Historic Preservation Office and rerouted the pipeline to avoid the artifacts.
