The Dakota Access pipeline cost almost $3.8 billion.

"Now that the Dakota Access Pipeline is fully operational, we find it more urgent than ever that the courts and administration address the risks posed to the drinking water of millions of American citizens". The commission also cited a third-party inspector that found ETP removed too many shrubs and trees along 380 miles of the pipeline in North Dakota.

Standing Rock Sioux tribal chairman Dave Archambault II renewed calls to fight the pipeline and to hold the administration accountable for starting and then stopping a more detailed environmental assessment.

Although it is now operational, the court battle continues, with protesters arguing the government did not follow its own ruling when President Donald Trump took office and nixed the lengthy environmental review, clearing the way for final construction.

As The Two-Way reported, a federal judge in March denied a motion for a preliminary injunction to stop construction, clearing the way for the completion of the pipeline.

The Dakota Pipeline has partnered with the Illinois-to-Texas Energy Transfer Crude Oil Pipeline, and already has a commitment of 520,000 barrels per day from shippers. Fortunately, no waterways were affected in the incidents.
