CARTHAGE, Ill. – With 230 landowners in Hancock County, Ill., potentially affected by the Dakota Access pipeline project, 93 showed up to a Illinois Farm Bureau information meeting sponsored by the Hancock County Farm Bureau.

The meeting was Nov. 12 at the University of Illinois Extension Center in Carthage, Ill.

As landowners wait for Dakota Access, LLC to file for permits, they received the message to be proactive and cautious.

“The company has not yet filed for a permit for construction,” said Rae Payne, senior director for business and regulatory affairs for IFB. “We expect that anytime. We want to talk about things you need to know as a landowner.”
