In South Dakota, rancher Paul Seamans says he initially opposed Keystone because of the way TransCanada "treated us, bullied us. Now, he says he's also concerned about the potential environmental damage, citing possible pipeline spills into waterways and the climate change impact of Canada's oil sands extraction.
So Seamans, who leads the grassroots group Dakota Rural Action, along with 42 other individuals and groups are challenging TransCanada's bid to extend its construction permit in South Dakota.
Still, Seamans says there are nearly three times as many groups or individuals challenging the construction permit now than did five years ago. "The tribes have got involved quite a bit more," he says, noting their concern about protecting tribal lands.

"The Keystone XL is slated to cross my land by Draper," Paul Seamans wrote in his party status application. "I feel I was bullied by TransCanada in that they threatened me with eminent domain in my first contract with their land agent. Eminent domain is the government power to take private property for public purposes if just compensation is paid.
Seamans is also the chairman of Dakota Rural Action, a grassroots agricultural group that has opposed the pipeline since it was first proposed.

Paul Seamans is a member of Dakota Rural Action, a group that opposes the project. The pipeline, which would go from Canada to the Texas Gulf Coast, would cut through his land. Seamans says TransCanada came knocking on his door 6-and-a-half years ago. He felt their proposal to use his land was more like a threat.
Seamans said, "If you don't sign, we have the power of eminent domain and we can condemn you so I've just never liked bullies and I feel that TransCanada has been bullying me and that's one of the main reasons I'm passionate about this."
Seamans and other nearby landowners have been protesting the project ever since. They say they will continue to do so when the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission decides whether to grant Transcanada a permit next year.
Seamans said, "Rural Action will be heavily involved in that process."

Paul Seamans, chairman of the Dakota Rural Action pressure group, owns a ranch 150 miles from the Dewey-Burdock project - but it's watered by the same aquifer, Seamans says, and could potentially be seriously impacted by any leaks.
That risk outweighs any economic boost the mine might bring, Seamans adds: "I'm more concerned about our water than about a few extra tax dollars."
