Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s R-1408 Pipeline Replacement Project
Document Type
CON - Early Consultation
Present Land Use
Within Jackson Creek and along Buena Vista Road and Coal Mine Road in a sparsely developed area near Buena Vista in Amador County, California (38.171436° -120.544628°). The area surrounding the project site is sparsely developed, and land uses around the project site are predominately rural agricultural. The project work areas to the north and south of the Jackson Creek crossing consist predominately of irrigated pasture, grazing land, and disturbed gravel road surface.
Document Description
The project consists of replacing approximately 950 linear feet of gas transmission line L-197C-2 to address an exposure of the pipeline where it crosses Jackson Creek near the community of Buena Vista, located in Amador County. The project includes replacing a portion of PG&E’s 4-inch gas pipeline at Jackson Creek with a 4-inch nominal diameter steel gas transmission pipeline via horizontal directional drill (HDD) methods. Once the installation of the replacement pipeline is complete, portions of the existing pipeline would be decommissioned by removing approximately 148 linear feet of exposed pipe within Jackson Creek and slurry filling and retiring in place the approximately 802 feet of the remaining portion of pipeline. The purpose of PG&E’s project is to replace a portion of its natural gas system to address the exposure of the existing pipeline crossing at Jackson Creek to maintain the safety and reliability of PG&E’s natural gas system.
