Dakota Access LLC officials will meet with state regulators this summer over two complaints lodged against the company for alleged violations of its permit during construction of its 1,172-mile pipeline.
The first complaint filed with the North Dakota Public Service Commission alleges that the company didn’t file proper certification or get permission for rerouting of the Dakota Access Pipeline in October. The North Dakota Public Service Commission adopted an order Wednesday requiring the company to provide information on that action.

Commission members said last fall the company waited 10 days in October before notifying them of the unanticipated uncovering of cultural artifacts at a construction site. The reroute was in response to the discovery.
The other complaint stems from a third-party inspection conducted months ago in which it’s alleged the company cleared trees and shrubs in violation of its permit at 83 locations along the North Dakota portion of the pipeline route. An investigation has been opened into this complaint, with a day-long hearing to be conducted.
