How safe are gas lines?

  • Follow Letters

I would like to see someone at The Augusta Chronicle investigate the high-pressure gas lines running through Richmond County into South Carolina -- just in case they are about to explode like the one did recently in San Bruno, Calif.

Wouldn't you rather have

Wouldn't you rather have someone who is qualified to do the investigation? Why a newspaper? This letter makes no sense.

Public Service Commission

Public Service Commission (PSC) supervises these gas lines. Our district is voting in November for a member. I had no idea about the PSC until this gas leak tragedy in California and of course the rate increases on power.

Bottom line, just don't vote for governor and walk away. Learn about all the elections on the ballot.

How safe are gas lines? They

How safe are gas lines? They are safer than the streets of Harrisburg. They are safer than Riverwalk after dark. They are safer than the Tobacco Road area.

Just one tip: try to avoid hitting them with heavy equipment.
