PG&E re-tests Woodside pipe that blew
WOODSIDE, Calif. (KGO) -- A much-larger gas line that broke during high-pressure testing last week is back in operation.
Line 132, which is the same line that caused the deadly San Bruno explosion in 2010, failed last week in Woodside during high-pressure water testing conducted by PG&E. When the line failed, it sent mud and other debris onto nearby I-280, causing traffic delays.
PG&E says Line 132 passed a high-pressure water test at 680 pounds per square inch -- about twice the normal operating pressure.
The utility company says there's evidence that the 24-inch line was damaged by an outside contractor, which led to last week's failure.
