What's worse than not knowing if you're living atop a high-risk PG&E pipeline? Knowing you are.
After Friday's entreaty by the California Public Utilities Commission
that PG&E provide a list of the specific locations of its 100 riskiest subterranean pipes, the utility giant spent the weekend scrambling to inform cities of the delightful news that they host said pipelines
. A full list could be released as early as today.
Once the CPUC has the list of "priority
candidates for replacement or upgrade for reasons of public safety" it will release it to the public.
Not being near one of the "100 riskiest" pipelines, incidentally, is no guarantee of permanent safety. San Bruno City Manager Connie Jackson told the Mercury News that, according to PG&E, no pipes running through that city are on the list -- even the section that exploded on Sept. 9.
