The Army Corps of Engineers at 17th and Capitol Avenue in Omaha was filled with dozens of protesters Thursday afternoon to voice their opposition of the decision to allow the Dakota Access Pipeline to continue.
An executive order by President Trump last month gave the green light for the project to continue. That was after an order was given that a larger environmental impact study was needed. The Corps gave permission to lay the pipe under a Missouri River reservoir in North Dakota.
This is just north of the Standing Rock Reservation. The tribe has filed a legal challenge to block completion of the project over concerns that a leak could contaminate drinking water.
