Mr. Fessler, some questions, One, was the marked line where the backhoe hit the line? I have seen the utlity contractors mark an electric line through a 36" blsck oak stump. If the utility was incorrectly located, then what would you say? That is a possibility in this case, just as much as the operator ignoring the marking which may also be true. It is easy to cast opinions as facts when you fly a desk. I really question how a building 20 to 30 feet from the line was completely destroyed. I mean is there not a gas valve on the building protecting from fire from supply lines? How could a gas surge inside the building occur from a broken line outside. I smell something fishy, not sulfer.
I am willing to bet that UGI did not know where the line was. It may have been installed prior to recording of such utilities.
