It is being projected that the U.S. Army Corps will spend more than $1 million of American taxpayer money to clean up the mess left behind by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and others opposed to the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota. It seems rather interesting when one considers that this group claims to so vehemently opposed to the Dakota Access Pipeline for environmental reasons.

The protesters successfully shut down the pipeline construction under orders from the Obama regime but were evicted from the area after President Donald Trump reinstated the project.

The Bismarck Tribune reported –

The corps’ contract with a Florida-based company to provide trash removal and environmental cleanup includes the main Oceti Sakowin camp on the north side of the Cannonball River and the smaller Rosebud camp on the south side. Both are on corps’-owned property.

About 240 rollout dumpsters have been hauled out, each brimming with debris of old food stores, structures, tents, building materials and personal belongings, much of it buried under winter blizzards or simply left behind. Officials are estimating it will require another equal number of loads to get the job done.”


According to Energy Transfer Partners – the company responsible for the project –

The Dakota Access Pipeline is a 1,172-mile underground state of the art 30” pipeline extending from the Bakken/Three Forks production area in North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois. The pipeline will transport domestically-produced, light, sweet crude oil from North Dakota to major refining markets.”

Other facts about the pipeline include:

  • The entire Dakota Access Pipeline is buried underground.
  • 99.98% of the pipeline is installed on privately owned property in North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Illinois. The remaining 0.02% is owned by the Federal Government.
  • The Dakota Access Pipeline can eliminate 500-740 rail cars, and/or 250+ trucks needed to transport crude oil every day.
  • The pipeline created 12,000 jobs during construction.

Many are concerned about the continued infringement upon the Native American land, specifically against the Standing Rock Sioux, as history shows that these people have been significantly abused by the United States government. However, to claim to be water protectors yet pollute the very ground you claim to want to protect shows a rather significant level of hypocrisy and that is what many Americans are currently finding very difficult to support.

God Bless.
