The intersection of Tasman Dr. and North First St. in San Jose has been named as one of the locations where PG&E has a “high risk” pipeline underground.
“I live right, right over there with my family, along with my niece, and that’s not okay. Not okay,” declared Jackie Jesus. Her message to PG&E was a simple one. “Fix it, ASAP. I don’t want what happened to San Bruno to happen down here.”
Mayor Chuck Reed had a similar message for the utility, urging PG&E to complete any and all repairs sooner than the currently scheduled timeline of 2012.
“We want to make sure that we’ve got the best practices, that we’re being cautious and careful and that we’re not doing anything that might cause any trouble for the pipelines because it’s quite clear they can be very dangerous if they start leaking,” Reed explained.
So far, there have been no reports of any leaks at Tasman Dr. and North First Street. Similarly, there have been no reports of any leaks at San Jose’s second “high risk” pipeline site, which is near the border San Jose shares with Milpitas.
PG&E was expected to release an official list of the top 100 “high risk” pipelines in Northern California as early as Monday afternoon.
