Update 10/24: The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe successfully requested and obtained a 30-day extension for public comments! The deadline has been moved from 10/26 to 11/26.
Filling out this form will email your comments directly to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. You can edit the default comment directly in the text box that appears after you enter your information. If you would like to send your comments from your own email, you can email NWO-DAPL-EIS@usace.army.mil with the subject line "Scoping Comments, Dakota Access Pipeline Crossing"
Why are we submitting comments to the Corps?
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has been fighting for years for the Army Corps of Engineers to conduct an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on DAPL. Now, a court has ordered the Corps to conduct an EIS, which will influence whether or not the pipeline is granted the permit it needs to operate legally.
This is where your help is critical: the Corps must take the public’s comments and consider them when conducting their environmental review. We need you to contact the Corps to make sure they partner with the Tribe and respect their sovereignty — something that they should have done since DAPL’s outset.
A successful public comment period could ensure that the Corps takes into account the treaty rights, climate impacts, and safety hazards that the pipeline affects when they study its environmental impact. DAPL slices through stolen land and never should have been built in the first place — please help us fight for tribal sovereignty and dismantle the colonial practices that threaten our ways of being.
