Welcome To My Neighborhood - 3 PG&E Gas Pipeline Converge Here

After 8 people died in San Bruno pipeline explosion last year, Chronicle reports on the dubious record of PG&E's pipeline safety. Sure enough, 3 gas main, line 109, 101, 132, all converge in my Potrero/Dogpatch neighborhood.

All I can say is things could have been worst. This previously industrial neighborhood was once the site of a humongous gas storage tank towering over the hill itself. When I moved in late 90s, the tower was already torn down. A food bank warehouse now occupies the cylinder shaped excavated site. The storage tank is now largely out of mind other than in some historical pictures. The underground infrastructure apparently remain operational.
