Pacific Gas & Electric program manager Aaron Rezendez says the company regularly gives local officials an "overview" of the transmission system with additional information linking them to a national mapping system of underground pipelines. The fire chief of San Bruno says he didn't know there was a major natural gas transmission line under his city. PG&E's Rezendez says he can't explain why the fire chief didn't know about the natural gas line under San Bruno. That pipeline exploded last September, killing 8 people.
