AMHERST, S.D. (AP) — TransCanada Corp.'s Keystone pipeline leaked an estimated 210,000 gallons of oil in northeastern South Dakota, the company and state regulators reported Thursday.

Crews shut down the pipeline Thursday morning and activated emergency response procedures after a drop in pressure was detected resulting from the leak south of a pump station in Marshall County, TransCanada said in a statement. The cause was being investigated.

If it was, I'd be willing to bet it wasn't anyone who lives around there. That would be pooping in your own bed. Someone who came into the area to make a big show of it, but they wouldn't need to live with the problem they caused. Very similar to most of those who want more wolves across the west. Most of them live in the cities and don't have to live with the issues that go along with the having your livestock being eaten.

You won't have to look further than green energy.

I wasn't familiar with that little town. Marshall County, SD is divided between the "prairie coteau" in the eastern half (hilly, more grasslands and wetland/lakes than cropland) and the James River Lowlands in the west (mostly cropland). The eastern side of the county has NA tribal and trust land in it but Amherst is found in the mostly cultivated western half. Either way, rural SD is pretty empty and it probably wouldn't be hard to sabotage a pipeline. But probably just some defective piece. Probably won't be the last but maybe they'll learn from it and can shut down leaks even faster in the future.
