For most of the morning, Todd Stamm of Sunoco Logistics, testified to the Iowa Utilities Board the importance of safety in a project like the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Among the many components built into the pipeline’s safety apparatus including remote shut offs, in-line inspections through the newest generation of pigs, and pressure and temperature sensors. Additionally, the pipeline will be inspected on a weekly basis from the air, accompanied by on the ground inspectors. This is to ensure the integrity of the line, as well as the safety of residences and farmland the pipeline traverses.
Dakota Access has made safety the number one priority for operating the line. As a responsible owner, Dakota Access deserves the IUB’s full support for the Dakota Access Pipeline project.
