The key concern of protesters at Standing Rock has been and remains the environmental hazard posed by Energy Transfer Partners' 1886km pipeline, which would have the potential to taint local water supplies and destroy sacred grounds. Confirming those exact fears, a pipeline in North Dakota has spilled some 666,232L of crude into a creek 241km north of the protest encampments.
