Standing Rock Sioux Tribe wins its major battle over pipeline construction

The Department of the Army said that it would not let Dakota oil pipeline to be constructed under a dammed section of the Missouri River and would search for alternative routes, The New York Times reports on Sunday. The project is estimated at $3.7 billion.

This decision became the main achievement of The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, the sixth-largest Indian Reservation located in North Dakota and South Dakota in the United States, with a population of 8,250. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, joined by environmental activists, harshly opposed the planned route of the projected pipeline.

The half-mile pipeline was intended to run from the Standing Rock Sioux reservation.
