99.98% of the pipeline is installed on privately owned property in North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois. The remaining 0.02% of the land is owned by the Federal Government. The Dakota Access Pipeline does not enter or cross the Standing Rock Sioux reservation at any point.
The only point at which the pipeline passes through public property is a small stretch in North Dakota owned by the federal government. That part of the pipeline consists of 1,094 feet (the length of about three soccer fields) at Lake Oahe in North Dakota.
