Over the next several weeks Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), as part of their Community Pipeline Safety Initiative, will be removing trees and brush on both private and public properties, that have been identified as a risk to pipeline safety. PG&E has worked closely with both private property owners and the City to effectively identify and mitigate vegetation removals. The work ensures first responders have immediate access to natural gas transmission pipelines in case of an emergency. For any tree that needs to be replaced for safety reasons, PG&E will work with the City or property owner to develop plans that protect public safety while preserving the character and natural beauty of the community. If you have any questions or would like more information about the planned safety work in Folsom, please contact PG&E’s local customer outreach specialist Tonya Kamaloni at 916-213-7594 or T1KV@pge.com.
