Dalrymple orders mandatory evacuation of DAPL protest camp on Army Corps land
28 November, 2016
BISMARCK, N.D. - North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple signed an emergency evacuation order Monday to evacuate the Dakota Access Pipeline protest camp on Army Corps land.
The emergency order addresses safety concerns and potential danger to human life for those camping on federal land without proper shelter during harsh winter conditions. Dalrymple shares the Army Corps' concerns that severe weather conditions would impede access by emergency medical responders and other emergency services.
The order says the unpermitted camp sites are not zoned for dwellings suitable for living in winter conditions and do not provide proper sanitation infrastructure to sustain a hygienic living environment.
The entire executive order is attached to this article.
