PG&E’s Natural Gas Line 147 Update
Contact :Jeff Maltbie, City Manager    (650) 802-4228
SAN CARLOS, CA, February 1, 2016 – The Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will be conducting equipment replacement work at night over the next two weeks of Line 147 along Brittan Avenue at Old County Road in preparation for an inline inspection. Once that work is complete, PG&E will perform test runs of the equipment in the line before running the actual inspection tool.

According to City Manager Jeff Maltbie, "Our expectation is that PG&E will complete the work needed on Line 147 so it can move forward with the inline inspection as soon as possible. We hope that the data collected during the inspection will answer questions about the safe operating pressure of Line 147, which has concerned our community for over two years."

PG&E continues to maintain the operating pressure at less than 125 pounds per square inch gauge (psig).
