The Dakota Access Pipeline is built to survive the test of time, extreme weather, and natural disasters. It uses state-of-the art construction material, including heavy-walled steel pipe that is nearly 50% thicker than required by law.
Construction of DAPL met or exceed legal requirement, and contemplates a wide array of contingencies. Although not required, DAPL used state of the art Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) beneath certain water bodies to greatly reduce the potential for environmental impact.
The pipeline will be subject to 24/7/365 remote monitoring. The pipeline route will be regularly patrolled and inspected by air to look for abnormal conditions or dangerous activities.
