The entire area was affected by the heavy rains of two weeks ago. Here are some updates on stories we have been following as well as some new information.
New Mexico Gas Company pipeline.
The five-foot floods that endangered an exposed NMGC pipeline ("Floods imperil natural gas line," Sept. 15) had a beneficial impact as they receded, depositing a layer of dirt over the exposed pipeline.
NMGC now has five feet of cover over the line, has applied reinforcing sleeves to any area that could potentially become an issue in the future and re-taped the line and placed a rock shield around it.
"Because the pipe is now securely buried, we no longer have plans to build an additional structure," said NMGC Communications Manager Teala Kail.
San Ildefonso Gov. Terry Aguilar also reports that the NNSA/DOE Gage Station 109.9 that caused the erosion over the pipeline is–at least at present–not an issue.
"The monitors and everything are pretty much damaged," Aguilar said. "There is no more 109 gauge."
