Healthy Community Research for Suisun City
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.

In 2004 there was a diesel spill caused by corrosion on the Kinder-Morgan pipeline in the Suisun Marsh. The Travis AFB supply Jet fuel pipeline runs parallel to that pipeline . The leaking pipeline was install in 1967. This happened even after State required annual pipeline PIG testing
The 1970 jet fuel pipelines buried in the Suisun City pipeline corridor have 90º bends. Pipeline PIG testing will not work.
As of today I do not know what kind of corrosion protection it has.
