PG&E is headed back to court over its natural gas pipeline that runs underneath San Carlos. It had been shut down over safety concerns.

The utility will argue the line is safe and give the California Public Utilities Commission an updated safety certification to prove it.

A court order to close the line came after an internal PG&E memo expressed concerns that the pipeline could explode, like the one in San Bruno.
