Suisun pipeline study authors call on PUC, PG&E for more info

Our Mission Statement 

Healthy Community Research for Suisun City, a project of California Healthy Communities Network/Tides Center will conduct a baseline study of pipelines in the Suisun City pipeline corridor.

The study will provide independent predictions of the pipelines’ life spans, the risks these pipelines pose to the human and natural environment, and risk mitigation measures.

During the study, we will be looking at—among other areas— data on pipeline materials, corrosion protection, installation history, and soil. 

The study findings, which will be disseminated to the public, local government officials, and pipeline operators, should hopefully initiate a dialogue between these groups on pipeline safety in the area.
