NSTB Sets Three-Day Hearing on San Bruno Incident

The March 1-3 public hearing will gather additional factual information about the Sept. 9, 2010, pipeline rupture and ensuing fires.

The National Transportation Safety Board will hold a three-day public hearing March 1-3 to gather additional factual information in its investigation of the natural gas pipeline rupture and explosion in San Bruno, Calif., on Sept. 9, 2010. The hearing will begin at 9:00 a.m., will be open to the public, and will take place in the NTSB board room and conference center in Washington, D.C.

The hearing will be telecast at http://www.ntsb.gov/Events/hearing_sched.htm. Expert witnesses will be invited to provide sworn testimony, and several organizations will be granted "party status" to the hearing so they can question the witnesses directly.

Reports, press releases, and safety recommendation letters sent to Pacific Gas and Electric Co., the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, and the California Public Utilities Commission are available at this NTSB page. The U.S. Fire Administration's resource page about the incident is available here.
