The DAPL Protest Site Clean-Up Took $1.1 Million and 835 Dumpsters

The feds have finally wrapped up the massive clean-up effort at the Dakota Access Pipeline “protest” site, a massive project that ended up taking more than three weeks, $1.1 million taxpayer dollars and 835 dumpsters.

The Washington Times reported Tuesday that a total of 8,170 cubic yards of trash and 12 dogs had been abandoned by hoards of “environmental” activists, who’d ironically taken over the site to protest potential water pollution allegedly posed by the DAPL Pipeline. Federal workers and volunteers were left with the clean-up, which was rushed in an attempt to keep the piles of junk from being washed by melted snow into the Cannonball River – the same river that so-called environmentalists had been up in arms about only a few months earlier.

The report noted the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, along with some volunteers, only cleaned up property owned by the federal government, leaving some private-owned land held by local Native American tribes to be cleaned up on their own.

The dozen dogs found abandoned at the site were taken to a local shelter for medical treatment, and officials said six have already been adopted. From the Washington Times:

Volunteers with Furry Friends rescued six puppies and two adult dogs shortly after the evacuation and picked up another four dogs March 5.

“Thank you to Fort Yates Game and Fish for holding the four dogs until FFRR could bring them into our care,” said the shelter. “Another thank you goes to Morton County Sheriff Department for allowing us to use their animal impound facility for quarantine.

“The dogs will be vetted — vaccinated, exam, dewormer, and bath — prior to being posted for adoption,” the shelter said.

Six of the 12 dogs already have been adopted, according to KFYR-TV in Bismarck.

“When we went to the Cannon Ball, Solen area on Sunday, just from there until now I’ve noticed they’ve gained weight and they’re looking good,” volunteer Stacy Sturm told the station. “They’re more social, they aren’t scared anymore, they’re really just coming a long ways.”
