PG&E pipeline project workshop postponed
The PG&E proposed Line 123 natural gas pipeline replacement project public workshop scheduled for September 24th has been postponed to allow additional time to complete the projects environmental review. An announcement of the completed environmental document documentation and rescheduled workshop date is expected within approximately the next two weeks.
PG&E is proposing replacement of approximately 3.5 miles of gas pipeline (Line 123) through Roseville as part of its Pipeline Safety and Enhancement Project (PSEP). The project was developed to comply with the California Public Utilities Commission decision to strength test or replace untested pipe in California.
Because of the age of Line 123 through Roseville and its location in a highly urbanized area, PG&E proposes replacement as the preferred method of compliance. Replacement also allows opportunity to upsize the existing pipe to meet future regional growth demands and to provide a consistent diameter pipeline facilitating use of remote in-line inspection tools.
PG&E presented information about the project at the July 17, 2013 Roseville City Council meeting. Download their presentation for more information about the project.
