NoDAPL Protest Home | Images | Environmental Damage

For an environmental protest, there was incredible damage to the environment from firewood that was brought in from out of state (ND has strict rules on out-of-state wood being brought in because we do not have some of the pests other states have), consumption of propane and petroleum-based products, and the garbage and aftermath of the camps. The camps were located on a flood plain and had to be cleared before potential spring flooding washed all of the garbage down the very river the protesters said they were trying to protect. Millions of pounds of trash, debris, human waste, food waste, plastic, tents, canvas, wood, motor vehicle fluids (transmission fluid, anti-freeze, oil), and more were found in the camp.
