In May, Pacific Gas & Electric Co. will conduct water pressure, or "hydrostatic," tests in Mountain View on 1.45 miles of pipeline 132a to determine the reliability of the segments.
PG&E has prioritized 132a based on similarities to Line 132, which exploded when it ruptured on Sept. 9, 2010, killing eight people.
PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said pipeline 132a runs beneath densely populated or "high consequence areas," and like pipeline 132, was installed before the state require pressure testing in 1962.
To explain the test and answer any questions, PG&E will hold meetings in Mountain View for residents from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on both Monday and Tuesday, at , 1701 Rock St.
Spanish interpretation will be available.
All are welcomed.
