Members of the South Dakota’s Public Utilities Commission told Reuters they may revoke TransCanada’s operating permit, pending the results of a probe into the spill earlier this month.

“They testified that this is going to be a state-of-the-art pipeline,” Gary Hanson, a member of the commission, told Reuters. “We want to know the pipeline is going to operate in a fashion that is safe and reliable. So far it’s not going well.” — Business Insider
