Dakota Access has requested permission to begin work on the pipeline in areas not under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The board received the request from the company on May 6th. The Utilities Board gave approval for a construction permit to build the pipeline across 18 Iowa counties, with the condition that the company get proper permits to cross waterways and other areas under the jurisdiction of the Corps.
The meeting Wednesday is at 10 a.m. at IUB’s office in Des Moines. It will also be streamed live online.
