A hearing set for Wednesday, April 24, to consider TransCanada's request to use water for construction of the Keystone XL pipeline has been postponed.

TransCanada says it plans to start construction on worker camps in August.

The company has asked the South Dakota Water Management Board to exclude tribes and environmental groups from the permitting process.

SDPB's Victoria Wicks has this report.
