PG&E Natural Gas Pipelines in Palo Alto

Ever since the big natural gas line rupture and explosion last week in San Bruno, I have been curious about the PG&E transmission lines in Palo Alto.  In Palo Alto, we have a municipal utility, but it looks like our local utility sources its natural gas from PG&E.  

Check out this map put together by the Palo Alto Daily News from a map downloaded from U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (their website and mapping tool have been very slow for the last week).   The yellow color shows the PG&E transmission pipelines in Palo Alto.
