Dakota Access Construction Equipment Set Ablaze in Iowa

Friday, November 4, 2016

Last month, construction equipment associated with Dakota Access LLC’s controversial $3.7 billion oil pipeline suffered about $2 million in damage as the result of an intentionally set fire. 

This isn’t the first time that the pipeline has suffered this kind of setback. According to the Jasper County Sheriff’s office, the fire occurred near the town of Reasnor, Iowa—not far from where other equipment associated with the pipeline had been set ablaze in August. The pipeline has been a source of controversy, and a number of activist groups claim that it could negatively impact the environment.

State and federal authorities are investigating to determine who is responsible and if there is any connection between the two incidents.
