Permit Denied For North Dakota Pipeline Project

 

North Dakota — (WSAV)

The Federal Government announced today it will deny a permit to build part of a big oil pipeline near Native American lands.

It’s a victory for protesters who have spent months trying to stop the project.

They said it would hurt the environment and destroy some ancient Native American sites.

The Corps of Engineers said in a statement that developers need to look into alternative routes for the pipeline.
