Senator Scott Martin will host a presentation May 4 for local officials and law enforcement personnel to discuss preparations for potential protests regarding the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline in Conestoga Township.

The event will be held from 1:30 to 4 p.m. at the Farm and Home Center, 1383 Arcadia Road. The forum is not open to the public.

The presentation will include a panel of officials from North Dakota, participating via video conference, who were instrumental in dealing with the economic and environmental costs within the Dakota Access protest area, according to a news release issued Tuesday by Sen. Martin's office.
