DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Utilities Board has ordered a Texas company to refrain from building a pipeline on 15 landowners' properties until Monday to give the board time to review legal issues involving a lawsuit.
The board issued an order Wednesday requiring Dakota Access to provide detailed information about the progress of construction in Iowa and the cost the company will incur if it is required to work around the parcels.
The landowners' lawsuit challenges the board's authority to allow eminent domain for a privately owned pipeline project. That suit has not come before a court yet, and the board will hear arguments Thursday on the landowners' motion to halt construction until that happens.
The $3.8 billion pipeline will pass through Iowa, Illinois, North Dakota and South Dakota, and has been met with weeks of protests in North Dakota.
