Update on Standing Rock


Dear Friend,

Contrary to what you may have heard, the Army Corps' December 4 Decision did not put a stop to the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) or its placement at Lake Oahe. 

Waterkeeper Alliance General Counsel & Legal Director Daniel E. Estrin lays out exactly what legal steps must be taken for us to win the #NoDAPL fight. Read his full analysis here.

How can you help right now? Formally changing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) status of DAPL is the single most important thing we can do! Write to President Obama and respectfully request:

This will help ensure that a valid NEPA EIS will be prepared, and that all of the potential impacts to human health and the environment will be carefully considered, before any final decision is made to approve or disapprove authorization for DAPL to cross the Missouri River.
