The South Dakota Water Management Board is hoping to wrap up hearings on Keystone XL pipeline permits in the next two days.

The board heard five days of testimony in October and five more days last month.

TC Energy and two landowners want to use water from Western South Dakota sources to build the pipeline and run worker camps.

Opponents include West River tribes and landowners.

This week the South Dakota Water Management Board is hearing four more days of testimony on water permits for construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. The board heard five days of testimony in October, but didn't get through TC Energy's requests.

Still waiting to be heard are applications from two landowners who want to host worker camps.
