Worker says Sacagawea Pipeline puts lake at risk (Fargo Forum)

The Fargo Forum reports on an apparent failure by pipeline contractor Boyd & Co. to properly inspect a segment of pipe installed under Lake Sakakawea.  From the article:

"Pipeline contractor Kenny Crase writes in a sworn statement filed with the PSC and federal regulators that he was ordered to skip a final coating inspection on a section of the Sacagawea Pipeline before another contractor installed the pipe under Lake Sakakawea in July.

"To me, it's an accident waiting to happen," Crase said in an interview with Forum News Service."
