Document Description
The North Baja Pipeline - Milpitas Wash Project involves the replacement of an approximately 260 foot long segment of 30 inch natural gas pipeline in the Milpitas Wash. Approximately 35 feet of the pipeline has been exposed and approximately 20 feet is suspended along the northeastern bank of the Milpitas Wash due to scour and lateral break erosion following an August 2014 storm event. TransCanada is required to operate and maintain its natural gas pipelines in order to ensure the safe and constant supply of natural gas to the public. This requirement is detailed in the U.S. Department of Transportation regulations codified in the Code of Federal Regulations, Tile 49, Part 192. The beneficiaries of the project are the public and TransCanada.
