Text of the Petition:
"We, the undersigned, hereby request that the Olympic Pipeline segment which traverses the grounds of the Kulshan Middle School in Bellingham, Washington, be replaced with new pipe, for our Kidsí Sake.
We call for safety "beyond any shadow of doubt". All the stretch of old ERW pipe from Skagit to Whatcom Falls Park got the initial pressure shock-wave which thumped that area at about 3:30 p.m., June 10th, 1999. One piece split, the day the park blew up. Another piece nearby, just uphill of this, split a seam in the hydro-test last fall. The integrity of the stretch of pipe on School property is in serious doubt.
We ask the pipeline owners to replace the entire segment on the school grounds.
