  The proposed 1,168-mile Dakota Access Pipeline already has approval from four states and a majority of private landowners in its path. Supporters say it will bring hundreds of jobs and will boost the economy. But tribes and others oppose the plan. They’re worried about the possibility of a catastrophic leak endangering precious water resources. Where’s the line between job-creation and environmental protection?
