Delay to the Dakota Access Pipeline: Route May Cross an Ancient American Indian Burial Ground

Despite opposition from members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe,   plans to construct the Dakota Access pipeline across four states continue, with construction under way in North and South Dakota and Illinois.

 Construction has been delayed in Iowa,  because of “the possibility of an American Indian burial site” on the planned pipeline construction route. 

A construction permit has been revoked by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, who owns the property in question, pending further investigation into the claims of the burial site.
