Natural gas BOOM!

Carol Overland - Legalectric - Tue, 02/18/2020 - 10:07am

Another natural gas pipeline explosion. How big was this pipeline, and under how much pressure? Articles aren’t saying.

Fire prompts I-37 closure near Citgo, traffic diverted to SH 358

I’m too often reminded of my clients who had a 12″ natural gas pipeline through their back yard, ~25′ from their house, right through their neighborhood, and others too, along and near Hwy. 14 in Kasson, it goes through Byron too. Why would any city approve of platting over a natural gas transmission line? SHAME! These local governments are as responsible for this as the pipeline owner.

Speaking of pipelines… BOOM!
