A natural gas transmission line, which ruptured in Woodside last week, has been retested.
A natural gas pipeline that was undergoing safety testing burst open Sunday afternoon, sending water, mud and rocks across northbound Interstate Highway 280 at Farm Hill Boulevard.
PG&E crews were working to replace a damaged section of gas transmission pipeline that ruptured during a pressure test in the Bakersfield area on Monday, a utility spokeswoman said Tuesday.
PG&E officials want Belmont residents to know that if they smell gas Wednesday, it’s not an emergency. The smell is coming from crews working on a pipeline on Ralston Avenue.
Following a scathing NTSB report that placed fault on the utility, PG&E is trying to figure out how to pay for the estimated $2 billion in necessary improvements.
Findings in the draft final report, which were publicly discussed for the first time Tuesday by the five-member board, indicate that flawed pipe, operations and oversight led to the disaster.
In less than a month, San Bruno will mark the one year anniversary of the pipeline disaster that killed eight people in the Glenview neighborhood. On Friday September 9th, members of the Crestmoor/Glenview neighborhood will gather at Skyline College for a somber memorial to the victims of the blast.
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. has started digging up an abandoned segment of pipe that was once part of the gas line that exploded in San Bruno last year.
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. said a court filing in response to lawsuits over the fatal San Bruno pipeline explosion was not intended to hold victims at fault in any way for the blast.
The utility company whose ruptured pipeline killed eight people in a massive explosion is seeking a jury trial to fight dozens of lawsuits, and part of its defense includes placing partial blame on some of the victims of the blast.
