PG&E work force to cut back seems to come ONLY after the disaster in San Bruno.
Surely the money to be wasted in removing can easily be lessened by inspecting the pipes using the high tech cameras to review potential breaks in the lines and then make better determinations of what part of the line is in serious trouble due to plants/trees.
It ALSO IS EVIDENT that the gas lines in San Bruno were doomed NOT BECAUSE OF TREES OR ROOTS BUT by faulty construction and careless welding along with careless monitoring of gas lines.
Removal does not do away with due diligence which wasn't done in San Bruno, and can be done all over where gas lines are.
CEO failure is now translated to CUT THEM ALL DOWN.
Its the slash and burn theory which doesn't have to be done to justify the failure of PG&E'S CEO and those in charged.
Now PG&E failure brings retaliation based on the notion of Public Safety which PG&E never did in the past.
So for as long as the San Bruno gas lines functioned there was no problem UNTIL the installation seams failed. ALL DUE TO FAILED INSTALLATION work, failed inspection work at time of installation, failed due diligence, failed mindfulness of public safety at that time.
Now PG&E wants to retaliate against the public by claiming public safety to use the Slash and Burn approach in all other places.
Failed leadership, failed installation inspections, failed care, failed concerned for public safety, failed crews who knew what was taking place, failed ability to blow the whistle on what was happening, NOW brings the sledge hammer to nail the public concern.
Over kill, over reaction, over frustration, over judgement, over destruction over public safety, concern, and landscape.
Who payes those PG&E CEOs? How much? And WHY?
PLEASE seriously consider what has just been said.
There must be better ways to deal with this?
Or does PG&E suspect that seams in all over lines are due to fail for lack of proper care from day one????

Hey Mr. Frankly you sound like a broken record...Enough is enough...PG&E is doing a great job delivering power and natural gas to our homes. Forget about San Bruno, PG&E is handling that matter.
Your comment is very long and boring and lacks substance... Without PG&E we would all be in a world of hurt. Instead of throwing rocks at PG&E, praise them for all the great work they do every single day.
Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo

Moved to solar several years ago. PGE is full of incompetent employees!
Looks like they have taken some lessons from San Bruno and are trying to avoid such problems in the future is a good idea.
