From Sharon O’Rourke, The Gas Company
I wanted to give you an update of our Sullivan Canyon Pipeline Protection Project. The project will take longer than originally estimated due to the recent rains we have experienced. We originally expected to complete the work sometime by November 12th. The new estimate for completion is now December 10th, weather permitting.
On August 4th, we started construction to repair the access road and install protective concrete mats over 12 pipeline exposure areas. These exposure areas make the pipelines vulnerable to damage. Of the 12 exposure areas, 8 pipeline areas have been inspected, repaired and covered with the protective concrete mats. We have 4 exposure areas to complete.
Due to on-going pipeline construction activity, public access to Sullivan Canyon remains closed.
