Tell the U.S. Army Corps You Support Keystone XL

The U.S. Army Corps is accepting public comments on the water crossings on the route of the Keystone XL Pipeline through Nebraska, South Dakota and Montana. The Army Corps, in conjunction with environmental agencies in Nebraska and South Dakota, must determine whether the crossings of rivers and other water bodies comply with the Clean Water Act. A positive review is necessary to move the long-delayed project towards construction, securing thousands of good jobs for pipeliners, including many Local 798 members.

Sign the petition below that we will submit to the Army Corps before the comment period ends on September 13.  


Dear U.S. Army Corps:

I am proud to show my support for the Keystone XL Pipeline Project as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reviews its water crossings route through Nebraska, South Dakota and Montana.

Since it was first planned more than a decade ago, Keystone XL has represented a safe and environmentally sound way to transport the energy this country needs, and project leaders have worked closely with federal and state agencies to ensure the land and environment remain protected through project construction and operation. 

I firmly believe the Keystone XL Pipeline's water crossings route should receive a favorable review, and the project should ultimately be approved, due to the following environmental commitments:

  • Engage thousands of stakeholders, including landowners, community members and Indigenous communities, to ensure the most environmentally sensitive project route;
  • Protect river crossings, creeks and wetlands with state-of-the-art techniques including horizontal directional drilling (HDD) to bury the pipeline far beneath river beds;
  • Reduce soil erosion by installing sediment barriers, trench plugs, mulching and other methods;
  • Develop and implement plans so all resources are protected to maintain their natural function within the environment. 

Keystone XL has been carefully studied by federal, state and provincial agencies for more than a decade. These studies unanimously concluded the project can be built safely and with care for the environment. In addition, the proposed route has been carefully selected to minimize the potential for impacts to surface water resources, as well as other sensitive environments.

This is why I urge the Army Corps and other decision makers to issue needs for this critical project without delay.

*PLEASE NOTE: Local 798 may submit your signature to state and federal regulatory bodies, as well as elected officials to support Keystone XL.
