Photos: Pipeline Stockpile at Worthing

After seeing my photos of the pipeline train waiting at Mina to proceed to the Dakota Access pipeline staging area west of Aberdeen, Richard Schriever sent these photos of a similar pipeline staging area a half mile west of Worthing on Highway 44:

    They built a berm around empty pipes? What are they full of-toxic rhetoric?

    Holy moly!That’s a lotta pipe!

    I suppose the berms are to keep the pipe in one place. They probably don’t want water and mud washing through them either.

    Mike, I like your take best. Very funny!

    The berms are actually laid out in rows, perpendicular to the direction of the pie – to rest the pipe on. Yes, to keep them elevated above any water/mud. The rows of pipe are approx. 1/4 mile long – each. At one length of pie every 3 feet, that’s 500 +/- per row, 5 rows high, 5- 1/4 mile long sections would be 11,000 pieces of pipe. If each piece of pipe is 60 feet long, that’s 125 miles worth of pipe.

  5. Sad if true, Bret.

  6. Made in Canada is a sad reminder that all we are is a toxic dump to the powers to be in Pierre and the world. We rely on mercenary business to deliver the coup de grace to our blind society. If you pick up a history book and read about the Roman Empire, you can see similarities. For all Faux vacuum followers, you can listen to O’Really blather his nonsense.

  7. Thank you for that very bold, proud veto, obama. attention all-the titantic is now turning
