An aging infrastructure to provide everyday services depended on in which no one is willing to pay for. But in the near future, we will see this in our bills, one way or another and there will not be a protest allowed by the powers that be towards PG&E.

”I want to be clear that this is not a list of our riskiest pipelines,” said PG&E spokeswoman Nicole Liebelt in a phone interview Tuesday.“What this is, is a long-term planning document that our engineers use to prioritize maintenance and repair work throughout our system.... Anything that's identified as a threat to public safety is addressed immediately -- we don't put those on a list.”

Soooo, according to PG&E they aren’t going to tell the public where their piplines that are about to fail are?

Again, more proof that PG&E doesn’t give a darn about their customers safety or peace of mind!

Everyone pay attention, after his job as a dog sled trainer and oyster technician, Middle Dick Road was a PGE executive until he found out what those tall trees with wires attached to them were for. He now serves on the board of directors for the study of ground hog tunnel dynamics and comes across pipes (bong and gas) each day while rooting around.

There's a PG&E station related to that line at Forest Glenn where the pipe is above ground butt I don't remember its size. I'm thinking it's 18 or 24 inches.

Thanks Times Standard.

So, if they're not poisoning wells and losing nuclear fuel rods, they're blowing up neighborhoods.

This November 2nd, we have an obligation NOT to elect VIRGINIA BASS. As a Eureka city council member she advocated for Calpine to build three 9-story LNG bombs on Humboldt Bay, less than one-mile from our most populated city.

Imagine oil rigs on our coast if she's elected supervisor.

You never provide proof middle twit so why should everyone else have to when you run away from that responsibility. Anyone who knows you also knows you have claimed more occupations then Jethro Bodine. Your most recent one I think you called something like "Social Aid Recipient Technician" to which most of us understand money we have to give to you because you exist. You think you rate it because you are such a high end topix contributor and pay your way in trying to convince everyone to understand you are always in the know. Most of us know that you are a legend, a legend in your own mind, the rest are now finding out.

Out of recognition of your earlier achievements why don't you tell us how you were the chief of police in a major city, it isn't my favorite but you can always get it and CC it from your previous posting. Better yet, get your little dog Wonderz to do it for you unless she is too busy campaigning on your behalf for citizenship for illegal aliens, thats a story in itself you can also share with everyone.

I think it's more like 8 or 10 inches.

Don't have to poodle puddle of the road, this is your new system where you have to prove you didn't post something. Hows that for your marxist way of thinking .... hmmmmm? Tell everyone how you were a pipe fitter for the space shuttle program where you could tell the i.d. of any pipe to the millimeter just by looking at it a mile away. Here, let me post the standard useless reply for you:

Strange, I already posted that for you but maybe you cannot read and use text to speech software? I'll tell you what motorbeer, you post your reference and I will post mine. Come on now, you can do it mother of the ditch, that is unless you make things up and then you'd be a liar which of course you do, right! We'll be waiting for a cognizant response other then a copy paste so until then, latter (that should be later but its alright), troll.

Wonderz, oh wonderz - motor of the sky needs your expertise to bail him out of this problem. Can you "tweet" him?

Misread much or was that intentionally meant to distort the statements meaning? It says those don't go on a "list", when they are identified, they are addressed. There are periodic (as in regularly scheduled) surveillances of all segments of the over 6000 miles of transmission pipeline that PG&E owns.

The way I read it PG&E is distorting the facts and trying to play the situation like they immediately jump and repair aging/faulty equipment whenever they identify it which is a contradiction to what they have been telling the media post San Bruno incident.

If the pipe in question is faulty and not going to be fixed immediately, how do they keep track of the situation, someone just remembers the problem?

Yes, I do understand the periodic inspection of infrastructure including such things as pipes, both external and internally by the use of smart pigs.

What sense would it make for PG&E to announce where the most vulnerable natural gas pipelines are? To make it easier for terrorists to put California to the torch?

PG&E manages a huge natural gas infrastructure in California and has, with this recent, terrible exception in San Carlos, done a good job of managing it.

As it has been said of Fire, Fire is a good servant, but a terrible master. The same can be said about natural gas.

PG&E has been the good guy for at least a half-century where natural gas is concerned. It has made sure NG was the good servant, not the terrible master.

I agree completely, however, with Deja Vu, that the Cal-Pine natural gas storage and processing facility did not have the kind of safeguards it needed to prevent a firey conflagration from destroying Eureka. Virginia Bass and her associates (Rex Bohn and others of that ilk) took the side of big LNG money and said, in effect, to hell with the safety of the people who live in Eureka and the outlying areas.

Does anybody remember the natural gas plant explosion in Morocco that happened soon after We the People persuaded CalPine to stop planning to build their plant on Humboldt Bay? In many ways, it was "the explosion heard around the world." If nothing else supports the idea that Virginia Bass is not aligned with the needs of our community, that does.

I think it is odd that there are individuals blaming Bass for the installation of a Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) Powered Plant operated by PG&E. I seem to remember many public hearings and still needing approval by the Coastal Commission (Who is a member of this?).

No matter who promoted or had a hand in this plant, the fear caused by the rupturing of the gas line in San Bruno(?) was caused by other uncontrollable forces. Consider the age of the line and the number of quakes in the area.

Instead of blaming one or the other candidate in regards to who encouraged the LNG Plant to be where it is, why not encourage more along the lines of replacing aged pipes? If I were worried about an explosion caused by the LNG this is what I would address first instead of blaming past work towards something the North Coast needed no matter what was placed there at King Salmon.
