SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- Several towns across the state will host public hearings this week regarding a proposed pipeline that would carry Bakken crude oil across South Dakota.

The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission will hold four hearings Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday’s hearings are in Bowdle (noon) and Redfield (6 p.m.), while Thursday’s will be in Iroquois (10:30 a.m.) and Sioux Falls (5:30 p.m.).

Named after the company that wants to build it, the Dakota Access pipeline would stretch more than 1,100 miles from Stanley, N.D., across North Dakota, South Dakota and Iowa to an existing crude oil hub in Patoka, Ill. Dakota Access, LLC, says the 30-inch diameter pipeline would carry up to 570,000 barrels of Bakken crude per day.
