CONTRACTOR ACTIVITY (Please time stamp observations by indicating time at beginning


of each new item):

7:40 a.m. arrived on-site. Spoke with crew about installing fire hydrants on Donner. The
Crew was on Donner last week and only installed 2 hydrants. 2 more hydrants need to be
installed still.
Approx. 9:30 a.m. While digging with a shovel; to build the receiving pit, contractors staff hit
the water service line to the home located at 3054 24 th Street. Contractor did not phone any
city staff to notify of the water hit.
10:00 a.m. Return to site. Reviewed traffic controls on 24 th. They need some correction; as
there is no Construction Ahead or Detour Ahead signs up. I asked Billy to address this.
When I approached the work area I noticed water flowing heavy in the gutter line. I observed
3 holes dug, all were full of water. Billy was in hole dug above the existing main trying to turn
the corp off at the main. He was unable to get water shut down.
10:20 a.m. water was being pumped out of the excavation with no filter bags. Boring rig
began to bore at home adjacent to the leak; 3056 24 th Street.
11:00 a.m. water was shut off and the crew was able to turn the line off at the main. Boring
machine then relocated to 3054 24th Street and began to bore again. I watched to verify the
bore crossed over the existing water main.
11:15 a.m. As the machine pushed through the soil a load gush of gas blasted up. The bore
machine had hit the gas main. I phoned mike Colasanti, Chris Powell and Brett Grant to
report the incident.
11:40 a.m. PG&E supervisor; Erik Kurtz (916-386-5373) arrived on-site with a full crew to
assess the damage. We started evacuations of the following homes: 3056, 3054 and 3048

24th Street. These homes were within a blast distance.


12:15 p.m. After speaking to Erik Kurtz about evacuations, we asked them to phone 911 as
standby just in case a critical incident occurred.
12:25 p.m. Fire standby arrived. T&S was asked by PG&E to provide assistance in exposing
their main. They made preparations to crimp the line while T&S dug. This crimp was placed
on 24th street, between Curtis and Donner. More PG&E crews arrived to assist and relieved
the T&S backhoe.
1:40 p.m. PG&E successfully crimped the line and stopped the flow of gas. Gas blew for 2
hours 45 mins which left a large void in the roadway. Many cars and T&S equipment was
covered in sand and debris. No residents mentioned any damage to their homes or cars at
this point.
1:50 p.m. PG&E requested that T&S assist in cleaning up the area in order for them to
expose the damaged gas line. Once this was completed PG&E began to excavate the area to
make a repair.
2:40 p.m. While PG&E was digging they hit the water service; 3056 24 th, which was
previously repaired by T&S this morning. This time the water service was pulled directly from
the main. I phoned Mike Shilliday and 311 to report the issue.
3:20 p.m. City utility crew arrived and began to shut off water valves.
3:40 p.m. Water finally shut off. Crew was able to turn off corp stop at the main after
dewatering. They then turned on the other valves; restoring all other homes on 24 th Street.
3:55 p.m. While digging to expose the line PG&E hit the sewer service for 3056 24 th street.
They phoned a plumber to repair. His ETA is unknown.
4:30 p.m. PG&E working on cutting their line to make the repair. They stated it would be a
long while before they are able to blow the gas line out and said the water service tech.
could get in to do his work at this time. The City water tech. stated he could not make the
repair and we needed to phone 311 to have another team come out.
5:10 p.m. PG&E informed me they have to remove the mud and water from the inside of the
pipe prior to restoring gas service. They have to cut another section out to perform this
work.
5:30 p.m. PG&E still not making any repairs. All supervisors have left the job site. 1
journeyman and 2 apprentices remain.
6:00 p.m. PG&E still not performing any corrections. No plumber on-site still to repair the

sewer service. I asked the Journeyman for PG&E what the status was. He (Casey) stated it
may be around 10pm.
6:10 p.m. Billy with T&S was not comfortable with leaving the resident without City services
any longer and chose to make the repairs themselves. T&S then repaired the sewer and
water. We then flushed the line and informed the homeowner they could use their utilities
again.
6:40 p.m. PG&E still not performing any corrective work. No supervisors on site still. We
informed the 3 man crew we had completed the repairs and backfilled our services. T&S
provided 2 trench plates for PG&E to use as cover; asking them to not backfill the repaired
services so we can ensure they are backfilled with approved material.
7:00 p.m. T&S and I left the site. PG&E still on-site. I asked Billy to come in early and clan the
streets and gutter.
