KEYSTONE PIPELINE SHUT DOWN AFTER LEAKING OIL IN NORTH DAKOTA AND NOBODY’S TALKING ABOUT IT

(TMU) — A pipeline carrying tar sands oil into the United States from Canada has reportedly leaked an unknown amount of oil across North Dakota. The pipeline’s owner, TC Energy—formerly known as TransCanada—shut down the pipeline as a result of the leak.

“TC Energy immediately began the process to shut down the pipeline, activated its emergency response procedures and dispatched ground technicians to assess the situation,” the company said.

According to State Environmental Quality Chief Dave Glatt, regulators were notified of the crude oil leak near the town of Edinburg in northeastern North Dakota late on Tuesday after detecting a drop in pressure. The oil was reportedly leaked over an area that regulators have estimated to be about 1,500 feet long by 15 feet wide as of Wednesday afternoon.

The Calgary, Alberta-based company is working to contain the spill, the cause of which is currently under investigation. Area roads are closed as the clean-up and investigation continues.

According to Glatt, area drinking water was not affected by the spill though some wetlands were affected.

It is unclear when the leak began and for low long it has been leaking.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the US's Indigenous First People peacefully protested the development of this pipeline, because of dangers like this, no one wanted to listen; and apparently, the Powers that Be still don't want anyone listening, to the point where this story has been marginalized out of most of this country's awareness through a massive lack of media coverage.
