Tuesday Must Read: PG&E Gas-Line List Is Incomplete: AC Transit to Slash Weekend Service

Stories you shouldn’t miss:

1. PG&E released a list of its 100 riskiest pipelines yesterday but the disclosure appears to be incomplete. The Chron reports that the list is missing gas-lines that the utility has previously said are at risk of failure, including the San Bruno line that blew up and incinerated a neighborhood, killing at least four people. Last year, PG&E warned state regulators about a section of the line that exploded, saying the “likelihood of a failure makes the risk of a failure at this location unacceptably high.” It’s not clear why that section was not on the list PG&E released yesterday because the pipeline has not been fixed. The list includes eight pipeline sections in the East Bay that PG&E says need to be repaired or replaced — four in Livermore, two in Sunol, and one each in Fremont and San Pablo.
