State officials warn of river contamination


February 15, 2017

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Maj. French Pope toured the Oceti Sakowin main protest camp Tuesday to assess the situation and determine what additional resources will be needed to complete the cleanup, started by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, camp residents and volunteers on Jan. 31.
