Bob Mercer links to this map from the Public Utilities Commission’s hearing on the Dakota Access Pipeline, showing how the Bakken oil shipper will hook into Energy Partners’ national pipeline network:
Orland organic farmer Charlie Johnson puts that map in local context with one photo:
Dakota Access Pipeline is placing orange survey stakes across area roads. This organic field has been farmed organically for 25 years by the Johnson family. DAP is planning to bury 30 inch pipe four feet under ground , severing tile lines. Up to 500,000 barrels of crude oil will flow across this field daily — all within a half inch of our precious South Dakota soil and water [Charlie Johnson, Facebook post, 2015.10.07].
The PUC Dakota Access hearing continues through Friday.
