The section of pipe near Hwy 101 and Hartnell Rd. south of Salinas mentioned in this article is directly west of the train tracks in this area. This pipe was breached last year by a worker on a backhoe. The leak caused a large natural gas outage for the southern Salinas Valley area. Luckily, this leak did not ignite and the worker was not injured or killed. I drove by the leak during the incident and the sound was very loud "like a jet engine" similar to the comments from witnesses in San Bruno.

I'm confused about the exact location of the Monterey pipeline. KION's report last night said the pipeline runs between Highway 68 (Monterey-Salinas segment) and the lower end of Aguajito, near the courthouse and Hyatt Regency. The Herald's report indicated it is located at the top end of Aguajito at the Highway 1/68(Holman Highway segment)/Aguajito interchange. Which is correct?

Anyway, pipelines run for miles. I would assume the segments in question would run for some significant distance. A single intersection doesn't mark the actual pipeline route or identify the full at-risk areas. More information is clearly needed.

The map on the PG&E website indicates that the Monterey segment is at the top of the hill, where Aguajito meets the Holman Highway. The map isn't detailed enough to tell you exactly where the pipe runs, though, or where the at-risk segment begins and ends.
