When the Keystone XL pipeline gets dredged, pipeline workers lose their jobs

Pipeline workers in Nebraska have lost their jobs after the state’s Republican governor announced the project’s environmental impact assessment will be revised.

The revised environmental review was made public Tuesday.

It found the pipeline’s proposed route will pass through areas where a dam was built in the 1960s that would allow more oil to flow through.

The study also found that a new spillway for the pipeline would destroy wetlands and water bodies that support native wildlife.

Nebraska Gov.

Dave Heineman said in a statement the revised review “reflects the new realities facing our state and the state of the nation as a whole.”

The revised assessment includes information from an assessment of the pipeline project that was done in March, which found the project will not harm the environment.

In addition, the report notes the project is likely to benefit the state and its economy in the long term.

Heinemans decision to cancel the pipeline has sparked a backlash.

Nebraska Governor Matt Mead said the move shows the “unsettling political dynamic of Nebraska.”

“This is the worst of times for the state,” Mead said.

“We’re trying to build a pipeline that will be a major boon to Nebraska’s economy.

But this is the end of the road.”

Heinemany, who was re-elected last month, has been critical of the project and said he will push the state to re-examine the pipeline, which is scheduled to begin transporting crude oil to refineries in Texas by mid-2018.

He said the revised assessment “is a slap in the face to our people, who are paying the price for this failure.”

The company behind the pipeline and the company that owns it, Energy Transfer Partners, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The decision to delay the pipeline means the company must wait another six months to complete its project.

The Keystone XL project was designed to carry 1.7 million barrels of crude a day to Texas, but environmental groups have said the route would have a significant impact on wetlands and wildlife habitat.
