Document Description
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) proposes to prepare Gas Line 119 for internal inspection in keeping with pipeline safety requirements. These preparations include excavation and modification of the pipeline to allow passage of internal inspection equipment. PG&E will use a backbone to expose the existing pipeline with an excavation measuring approximately 5 by 8 feet and replace the current "T" fitting with an "elbow fitting". The excavated materials will be stockpiled outside of the wetland or riparian areas. The total area of wetland disturbance is expected to be 20 by 20 feet. The top six inches of soil will be removed from the excavation site, and segregated. Following construction, the excavated soil would be backfilled and compacted in place. The top soil would be replaced from where it was excavated, and stabilized with erosion control measures such as fiber rolls or jut netting. The project should be completed in three to five work days.
