If it must be, then the bright side is that the residents will have ample sun for great vegetable gardens. It can be healing.

These two high pressure distribution lines (#109 and #132) are also under the fields at Crittenden Middle Sshool. They travel essentially under the third base and across the field (150 ft from the blacktop corner) to the middle of the parking lot off of Middlefield (West lot). The state will not allow new school property to be bought over these types of gas lines! There is supposed to be an independent (not PG&E) review when any school buildings are within 1500 ft of a high pressure line.
These are the types of details that the school Board and the MVWSD administrators should be keeping track of. (IMO) By talking to the city Public Works engineer on this, I've found that the #109 replacement (to the middle of Middlefield), will not be tied in until 2013 summer. And the #132 line (San Bruno explosion line) is not on even on the 3 yr. replacement schedule.
THANKS FOR THE "GAS" ARTICLES Daniel!

The bigger picture and the point is PGE making changes that save them money but keeps lives of our neighbors in danger.In monitoring from the air, if they see something it will take time to get to the problem, they will have to evacuate. If an explosion there will be death and fire and they will not be able to deal with the pipe because they will be dealing with fire. If the pipe were in an area free of homes the pipes can be dealt with and people will at least have a chance. I want our neighbors safe, they deserve to have a life. I understand it will be expensive,but it is possible.
