Dakota Access Pipeline Already Had Its First Leak

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown May 14th, 2017 Blog

No one wants to say, “I told you so,” but this is what we were all afraid of. The Dakota Access Pipeline has already had a leak and it originally went unreported to the public due to the size.

From an NBC News interview:

“These kinds of spills do occur,” Rebecca Craven, program director at the Pipeline Safety Trust, told NBC News. “Sometimes they’re contained on company property, and sometimes they do more damage as they escape off company property.”

The public often does not know about those types of leaks because of their size. Companies do not have to report oil pipeline leaks to the federal government unless they’re over five barrels, which is 210 gallons of oil, and if they clean them up quickly.


The following is a statement from Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Chairman Dave Archambault II in response to reports of an oil spill from the Dakota Access pipeline along its South Dakota leg:

“The Dakota Access pipeline has not yet started shipping the proposed half million barrels of oil per day and we are already seeing confirmed reports of oil spills from the pipeline. This is what we have said all along: oil pipelines leak and spill. Our lawsuit challenging this dangerous project is ongoing and it’s more important than ever for the court to step in and halt additional accidents before they happen – not just for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and our resources but for the 17 million people whose drinking water is at risk.”

What do you guys think? Just a drop in the bucket and nothing to be concerned about? Or is this just a glimpse into bigger problems down the line?
