Nearly two years after the deadly pipeline explosion in San Bruno, a new report was released Monday.
Pacific Gas and Electric Company says it has identified more than 200 of its gas pipelines that are in danger of a failure similar to that tragedy.
But are any of those dangerous lines here in the Central Valley?
PG&E officials won't tell us.
Officials said the information wasn't available, but it is their report.
You may recall the San Bruno disaster killed 8 people.
A disaster that destroyed 38 homes in the San Francisco suburb of San Bruno.
A disaster PG&E told California regulators was caused by a pipeline test the company performed in 1956 that damaged a weld.
Since then, PG&E has come under fire for poor management of its entire aging network of gas pipelines.
PG&E officials say it has identified more than 500 trouble spots on those lines, along sections ranging from a few feet in length to more than a mile, spanning a combined 48 miles.
KMPH News Reporter Erik Rosales asks, "Specifically here in the Central Valley where are these pipelines that are troubled?"
Jeff Smith, PG&E Spokesperson says, "Our system is not classified by in terms of where the gas pipelines are outlined in our system, they are not done by region, by county or by city they are done by mile marker. We are working at translating the mile markers to traditional map geography."
Rosales asks, "Will you be making that information available to the public?"
Jeff Smith says, "First we have to make sure we are able to translate the information properly. We certainly want to be transparent with the public on all these findings."
Translation: at this time no maps and no potentially dangerous pipelines being identified to the public, by PG&E.
PG&E did say it plans to replace some of the gas lines and test others with high–pressure water.
You may recall, the state ordered these PG&E inspections after the San Bruno explosion.
