What was PG&E doing at the corner of McAbee & Golden Oak Way?

According to our reporter in the field, Project Manager Pat Pizzo, PG&E came out on Dec 28th.  in response to a report of gas leaks in the area. After investigating, they decided to check the main gas pipe line that feeds the area on the NE Corner of Golden Oaks Way and McAbee Road. This area was where Andrew Oberhelman completed his Eagle Scout Project on Nov 10th, 2012.

In the process of looking for the leak, the native plants growing in an approximate 25 foot square area near the corner were wiped-out.

PG&E said that they will hire a contract landscaper to re-plant the area. However, because CA native plants are involved and commercial landscapers are not always knowledgeable about CA native plants and their needs, this may be problematic.  So far there is no estimated date for completion of the landscape replanting.

Please note:  PG&E did come back and replace the plants that were torn out.

    THAT STINKS. ALL THE HARD WORK YOU GARDENERS HAVE PUT INTO SELECTING THE PROPER NATIVES, PLANTING AND CARING FOR THIS AREA.

    YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SUBMIT A BILL FOR REPLACEMENT PLANTS AND THEN MEMBERS DO THE ACUAL SELECTION, PURCHASE AN REPLANTING.

    THERE WAS NO REASON FOR PG&E TO BE SO IRRESPONSIBLE AND DECIMATE AN ENTIRE AREA. ONE OR TWO PLANTS I CAN UNDERSTAND BUT THIS IS PILLAGE.
