Activist ire rises as Dakota Access Pipeline review begins


February 2, 2017

CANNON BALL, N.D. — Native Americans and activists protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline project expressed alarm on Wednesday, Feb. 1, after federal lawmakers from North Dakota said the final permit had been granted for the project, a statement later contradicted by the Army, which issues such permits.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said on Wednesday it has started a review for the permit but that the easement had not been granted. "The Assistant Secretary for the Army Civil Works will make a decision on the pipeline once a full review and analysis is completed in accordance with the directive," it said in a statement.
