PG&E Pipeline 147 Updates

Inspection Update (May 2015)


PG&E Natural Gas Transmission Line 147 is a 20” high pressure natural gas transmission pipeline that is 3.8 miles long and runs from the Interstate 280 corridor, through San Carlos (roughly along Brittan Avenue), to the intersection of Old County Road and Commercial Avenue, where it connects with PG&E high pressure natural gas Line 101, that runs north and south along the Peninsula.  See the map.   In early October, 2013, the City of San Carlos became aware of a series of internal PG&E e-mails that disclosed alarming information about the condition of Line 147.   Below is a timeline of events related to the issue of Line 147.
