PILOT MOUND - On Saturday, about 30 people gathered at Pilot Mound for a small rally.
They were celebrating the news that Dakota Access did not properly apply for one of its permits. The rally focused on keeping drinking water clean.
It's taken a small shift from stopping the pipeline outright. Now, organizers say the focus is just as important, but a little broader.
"I think it's bigger, that's been the interesting part about this whole movement is you know we focused on the pipeline because it was this big immediate threat we all find out were concerned about other things too we all care about where we live and making life better," said Mark Edwards, one of the participants in the rally.
The group says its work isn't done yet. The next step is to ensure the legal cases progress through the courts.
