California hits PG&E with $5 million in citations for gas leaks

“State officials issued $5 million in citations against Pacific Gas & Electric Co. on Monday for violations resulting in two natural gas leaks in Northern California in 2016 and 2017.

The California Public Utilities Commission, which oversees utilities, issued a $4.05 million citation to PG&E stemming from a 2016 incident in Deer Park. The agency said employees of PG&E caused natural gas to leak during an attempted repair of a service valve. A subsequent ignition of the gas caused two injuries, it said.”
