This bill requires the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to obtain consent from relevant nonfederal agencies and Indian tribes before granting a permit, easement, or other right-of-way for a pipeline transporting oil, natural gas, synthetic liquid or gaseous fuels, or any refined product produced from those materials on land associated with a civil works project of the Corps of Engineers or an associated flowage easement, if the construction or operation of the pipeline has the potential to impair the beneficial uses of the surface water or groundwater used by the nonfederal agency or the Indian tribe.
