"we have to hope and rely on the utilities board, and hope that they rule against the pipeline, and against the fact that a private company can us eminent domain on a person's property" says bill luetkeman, landowner. bill luetkeman, who was listed in the suit, says the compensation he's been offered by dakota access is written vaguely and in favor of the company. it also doesn't include environmental insurance, which could lead to more lawsuits for farmers if there are leaks that damage their land. "they're going to pay us for three years of crop damage, and i think we'll see damages for longer than three years, we have no idea whether the ground will freeze and thaw under it anymore, because we don't know whether there's friction involved in the pipeline, keeping it warm... whether they got to keep the oil warm to transfer oil. it crosses every major river in iowa...the water supply, it's just a scary thing if something happens" says bill luetkeman, landowner. ecological risks and emotional heart ache, bill says it's not just about the land or next harvest season. this land runs through six generations, and will be passed down to his daughter.
