Dakota Access Pipeline is committed to being a good neighbor, a good business partner and a valued member of Iowa’s communities, officials said. Dakota Access will make similar donations to county emergency management departments across its four-state route, totaling $1 million across 50 counties in North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Illinois.

“Jasper County will utilize the funds to develop additional capacity in three general response areas,” said Jim Sparks, Jasper County’s Emergency Manager. “That includes HazMat operations and decontamination training/supplies, firefighting foam to supplement existing supplies and additional communications and surveillance equipment for the County Mobile Command Post.”

Dakota Access Pipeline traverses approximately 134 miles through Calhoun, Webster, Boone, Story, Polk and Jasper counties in Iowa Separately, Dakota Access recently donated $15 million to the state of North Dakota to help offset the costs the state incurred for the response to the protests. The company is also donating to the Iowa 4-H Foundation and the Iowa FFA Foundation.
