On April 29th of 2016, a 30-inch diameter gas pipeline in Salem Township, Westmoreland County exploded, damaging several homes and disrupting gas flows. Parts of the pipeline were launched high into the air, landing at least 100 feet away.
Federal investigators found the pipeline had corroded in at least two places.
The event provided a powerful reminder that inspection, repair, and corrosion control of gas piping is of paramount importance, whether the line is sub surface or exposed.
