PG&E was here to discuss the pipeline that runs through Fremont that is listed the second most dangerous in the system.
The pipeline runs through Mission San Jose north of I-680 and then cuts through Irvington across Washington Boulevard and Osgood Road.
PG&E promised they’d repair it by the end of 2012.
There’s a lot PG&E still hasn’t told the city, such as why it’s listed as the second most at-risk pipeline or whether there are automatic shut-off valves.
But Fire Chief Bruce Martin says he’s seen enough info and talked to enough PG&E folks that he doesn’t think the pipeline is an imminent danger.
PG&E is doing engineering studies on the pipeline and still determining if they’ll have to replace the pipeline in parts or just reinforce it. The pipeline was built around 1947-48, which makes it a little older than the one that blew in San Bruno.
