Natural Gas Pipeline Pierced in Gaviota
By an edhat reader
On Thursday afternoon construction crew for SB County Fire broke a 12 inch gas pipeline while cutting a road near the old Vista Del Mar school at Gaviota. As a result the entire San Julian valley is without natural gas. SoCal Gas crews were dispatched to disconnect and cap every gas service meter on the line between and Lompoc. An estimated 100 households are without cooking, heating and hot water for an as yet undisclosed time. Updates have been absent as residents wait for utility service to resume.
