The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe is once again in court to try to preserve their land and water. Before Trump was elected they were elated when President Obama halted the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline asking for more research to be done on its environmental impact. Unfortunately, one of President Trump’s first actions was to call for an expedited review which he got and then ordered the immediate construction of the pipeline.
According to BuzzFeed News:
“In court earlier this week, a lawyer for Dakota Access LLC told the judge that it would take about 60 days to finish building the pipeline once construction resumed, and about 80 days until oil is flowing through it.”
