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?

A Side of Standing Rock You’ve Never Seen…….

A Side of Standing Rock You’ve Never Seen

The fight for Standing Rock took the media by storm in the fall of 2016. Images of protest and unrest surfaced on every major media outlet. Filmmaker Bennett Johnson felt there was more of a story to be told, and he focused his film on a small group of who protested in prayer; the battle they fought was in solidarity, peace, and faith. This film, set to Foreign Field‘s song “Hope Inside the Fire,” delivers the message that this event had many stories go untold.

Riding Wild David Wolfe’s video.


This is a journey made from the spirit of wild adventure and a dedication to sharing the value of nature, and our connection to it. Follow our 8 month ride spanning over 4,000 miles from the U.S. Mexican border to the Sacred Headwaters of Canada. Starting in the heart of winter, crossing mountaineous peaks and raging rivers. My teammates consist of three mustangs and a dog. Through this journey I hope to inspire a call to action to help the Tahltan and Gitxsan First Nations people protect their territories from the imminent threat of environmental destruction. Your donation will go towards creating a documentary of this journey and will share the voices of the elders, the real heroes who have sacrificed their lives to protect the Sacred Headwaters. It is my hope that by documenting this journey, we will also share the value of wild horses and advocate for the protection of the remote frontiers of the natural world that support all life on the planet. #ridingwild #keepitwild #risetogether
