PG&E defends its outreach to local cities at NTSB hearing on San Bruno pipeline explosion

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.
