US to require safety valves on more gas lines
from The Associated Press via New Jersey Herald
New or replaced gas service lines for hundreds of thousands of apartments and small businesses across the U.S. must be equipped with inexpensive safety valves starting next year, following deadly fires and explosions over decades that could have been avoided, the Obama administration announced recently. The National Transportation Safety Board and many advocates had pressed for years to broaden requirements for so-called excess flow valves, which can shut off gas automatically when a line is ruptured.
