San Carlos may spend $250,000 to determine safety of pipeline
SAN CARLOS, Calif. (KGO) -- San Carlos is now considering hiring legal and technical experts to investigate whether a PG&E gas pipeline under the city poses a danger.
City Manager Jeff Maltbie plans to ask the city council to spend as much as $250,000 to investigate the issue.
On Wednesday, the city called off a state of emergency in place since last Friday.
The order came after an internal PG&E memo expressed concerns the pipeline could explode, just like the deadly incident in San Bruno.
The pipeline runs on Brittan Avenue, between Highway 101 and Interstate 280.
