In much the same way that the Keystone XL pipeline was finally blocked in 2015 by the lack of one last federal permit, the Dakota Access construction was blocked for months by a single unissued permit from the Army Corps of Engineers.
The Army Corps on Wednesday granted the easement to Dakota Access LLC, the company building the pipeline.
The US Army Corps of Engineers will grant an easement in North Dakota for the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline, allowing the project to move toward completion despite the protests of Native Americans and environmentalists.
"We are a sovereign nation and we will fight to protect our water and sacred places", David Archambault II, the chairman of the Standing Rock Tribe, responded in a statement.
The Dallas-based pipeline developer says it will be safe.
Earlier on Wednesday, former Obama administration Interior Secretary Sally Jewell criticized the Corps for "reneging" on the commitment she made late past year to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and other Native American leaders. The environmental impact study initiated in January will be canceled, the corps said. The executive order underscored the president's stance that "construction and operation of lawfully permitted pipeline infrastructure serve the national interest". But in the past two weeks, at President Trump's urging, a process that his predecessor had decelerated was suddenly moving forward, culminating in the Army's decision Wednesday to give Energy Transfer Partners an easement to drill under a vast reservoir less than a mile from the Standing Rock Sioux's reservation.

The stretch under Lake Oahe is the final big chunk of work on the 1,200-mile pipeline that would carry North Dakota oil through the Dakotas and Iowa to a shipping point in IL.
A legal challenge against the pipeline has also been mounted. Pipelines are critical to safely and efficiently transporting the very energy resources that American families and businesses rely on every day.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has opposed the pipeline's current path and construction, saying the pipeline was too close to its water supply. "The Dakota Access pipeline runs right through the water of our communities".
President Trump is a businessman so you'd think he would know a good bet when he sees one. "Rise with Standing Rock". While most organizers have encouraged people to fight the pipeline in Washington and through their local governments instead of coming to North Dakota, Chase Iron Eyes and some others have encouraged people to return to North Dakota to protest construction. He said some people were leaving the Oceti Sakowin camp in Morton County and going to neighboring Sioux County.
"Donald Trump's risky and legally questionable attempt to ignore the environmental review will be met with fierce resistance by a broad coalition of 300 tribes and millions of Americans in the court and on the streets", Brune said.
At a North Dakota encampment that's been the focus of the pipeline battle for months, the mood was tense, with a few dozen people milling about on a frigid morning and refusing to talk about their plans.
