The Dakota Access Pipeline is an entirely underground pipeline that will safely transport hundreds of thousands of barrels of crude oil per day from the oil-rich fields of North Dakota to a distribution center in central Illinois. Only where there are pump stations or valves of testing stations is there any portion of the pipeline above ground.
The pipeline is buried nearly 4 feet deep in most areas and in all agricultural lands, two feet deeper than required by law. The pipeline will cross at least 95 feet, and at points, up to 115 feet, below the bottom of Lake Oahe.
