dana. certainly there are a lot of people who think what's going on is caused by muni and electrical charges from the light rail. but three years of asking questions have failed to produce answer. and as you pointed out, the leaks continue. water gurgles up from under the pavement at 15th and u loa, again. it's the latest in a string of mysterious water line breaks dating back three years ago, breaks that are caused by muni's light rail line, they claim. while the weight and frequency of the trains at this busy corner may or may not contribute to the pipe problem, neighbors say stray electrical currents from the trains travel through the ground and set up corrosion and buried water pipes causing them to leak. >> we changed the pipes four times over the last i would say three years or so? >> reporter: so often, the family left a sidewalk cut open so they could check on and replace pipes as needed. >> kept breaking and breaking
6:01 pm
in short increments of time t wasn't like a year or two went by. it was like within a month or two. >> reporter: they replaced the copper pipe with heavier copper pipe, replaced that with copper pipe wrapped in insulation and replaced that with pvc, plastic pipe which doesn't conduct electricity. slabs of new concrete along this stretch of 15th show where water pipes have been dug up and replaced repeatedly. cbs 5 investigated the mysterious pipe leak incidents three years ago and interviewed experts who agreed that the cause of the leaks may be muni's light rail system. laszlo at the time worked on corrosion issues for pg&e. >> i think it is possible that the large number of leaks on the water service pipes are generated by stray current corrosion. >> reporter: in 2007 after cbs 5 brought the pipe problem to the city's attention, the water department paid out $5,000 to residents in this one block to cover water bill overcharges
6:02 pm
related to 30 leaks and pipes. but a promised closer look at the problem by the city never happened, never solved the mystery and never produced payments to neighbors who say they spent thousands fixing pipes. >> i do remember receiving a letter saying the problem is the residents's house, they say it's your fault because your house is not grounded down correctly. >> reporter: the city attorney's office told us three years ago it would look into the matter. today it told us it's no longer handling the case and referred us to muni. >> we're looking at ways as to how this happened and how to prevent it in the future near term and long term. and if -- whatever it is, we're here to help and we're here to rectify the problem. >> reporter: muni remains noncommittal on the question of whether or not electrical current under the ground is the culprit. but it says as it has been saying for three years, we're working on it. dana. >> yeah, it is such a huge mystery and muni runs all over the city yet this is as far as
6:03 pm
we not only area where this is happening. is that correct? >> reporter: only area in san francisco. but apparently, in past reports we have learned that it has happened in other parts of the country, there have been similar electrical issues that have caused problems with pipes. so it's not a unique problem. obviously it's very difficult to sort out. >> thank you, don knapp. we have some breaking news coming out of solano county. all lanes of i-680 are closed due it a grassfire burning along -- due to a grassfire burning alongside the freeway near gold hill road. the chp first shut down the southbound lanes but now has closed traffic in both directions due to smoke blowing across the freeway. that fire is now under control, but as you might imagine, the traffic is very slow in the area. anything but a routine landing at sacramento international airport this afternoon. this is home video of the plane being evacuated. pun passenger shot this right after a jetblue flight landed

6:05 pm
with the brakes. the crew deployed the emergency slides to evacuate the plane and witnesses say that is how most of the injured got hurt. >> one lady had come off the chute and landed on her tailbone on the tarmac. and then one other lady i think maybe had some injuries to her ankle. >> reporter: 86 passengers and five crewmembers were on board. sandra hughes, cbs news, los angeles. flights into oakland international airport and mineta san jose airports getting a little more dangerous. the faa reports oakland and san jose rank fourth and fifth, respectively, in the number of laser strikes on aircraft. these are national rankings now. laser strikes have been on the rise in recent years. earlier this week, a san jose police helicopter was hit with one of those laser beams. shining lasers at planes is dangerous because the light can temporarily blind pilots. a 13-year-old track star about to start his freshman year of high school was shot and killed a few blocks from his home. the boy was walking near 61st and bancroft in oakland.

6:07 pm
>> heard six or seven shots, then people screaming and making noise out here. >> reporter: police say jimon died. luckily the other teen wasn't hit. motive and suspect are the unknowns. >> anytime we have a violent crime or any crime in oakland, it's the citizens that will finally say enough is enough and give the information to the police department so we can solve the case. and i think in this case, we are going to get that information. it's just a matter of time. >> reporter: jimon was supposed -- >> jimon was quiet, never gave me problems of any kind. >> reporter: now, police say that jimon is the 56th person murdered in the city of oakland since the beginning 246 year. and dana, jimon was supposed to start at skyline high next week and celebrate his 14th birthday on wednesday. >> the coach said it. when is this going to stop? last wrong with people?? all right. sherry hu, thank you. -- what is wrong with people??

6:10 pm
especially cautious because there could be another break down the line at a weak spot. they will continue to do water testing on the lagoon. because it flows out to the bay, they do think that eventually the toxic sewage will naturally dissipate on its own. >> for the home owners the stuff got into their homes mainly the garages, is it up to each home owner to clean it up or is the city helping? what's going on? >> reporter: no. the city will be helping. and what they have told me is they are waiting for the pipes -- the work on the pipes to be finished and then they will begin work on cleaning out the garages. as far as we know, the sewage only seeped into the garages and didn't make it actually inside the homes. but again, as i mentioned, once they turn this it all back on, once they fix this pipe, there is a little concern we could see another break somewhere farther down the line. we'll keep you posted. >> thank you, julie watts. one year ago she escaped 18 years of captivity. how jaycee dugard will be marking the commemoration of her freedom. another brush fire in the

6:15 pm
for years and for home owners, it's a great incentive. >> clear vegetation around the home is very expensive. to have a contractor come in and cut and remove it, i'm alleviating some of the stress and cost by offering up that he hauling and shipping away free of charge. >> reporter: sandy ross and her nations always take advantage of the program. >> it's a very good thing because you need to encourage people to get rid of the brush from around their house. >> reporter: the program operates year round and is made possible by a city service tax. when they are not helping residents, crews are busy keeping power lines, roads and even fire breaks clear. >> for instance, on that ridgeline, we got 75-foot of clearance on each side of the ridge. so it's a total of 150 feet. if a fire is burning into or out of mill valley, we can make a decent stand along that ridgeline. >> reporter: whatever mulch isn't used by home owners goes to the landfill for compost. in mill valley, alex montano,

6:31 pm
minded. we are actually reaching out to all the other healthcare providers in the communities that we're looking at, including the department of health services, to find out from them where they think the most need is going to be. where are there gaps in services? >> reporter: the cutoff is effective next week and new clinics are still months away. but the severed golden gate affiliate clinics will not shut down. interim president and ceo therese wilson said in a statement they will operate under a new game, golden gate community health. had we elected to close it would have directly resulted in a lapse of service in the bay area for some time and the golden gate affiliate said that was unacceptable. planned parenthood's golden gate division has seven clinics around the bay area, including this one in san francisco, oakland, hayward, san mateo, san rafael and rohnert park. the plan is all of them will remain open under that new name

if you have high cholesterol, high blood pressure or diabetes, you may also have very high triglycerides -- too much fat in the blood. it's a serious medical condition. lovaza, along with diet, effectively lowers very high triglycerides in adults but has not been shown to prevent heart attacks or strokes. lovaza starts with omega-3 fish oil that's then purified and concentrated. it's the only omega-3 medication that's fda-approved. you can't get it at a health food store. lovaza isn't right for everyone. tell your doctor if you're allergic to fish, have other medical conditions and about any medications you're taking, especially those that may increase risk of bleeding. blood tests are needed before and during treatment. in some, ldl or bad cholesterol may increase. possible side effects include burping, infection, flu-like symptoms, upset stomach, and change in sense of taste. ask your doctor about lovaza, the prescription that starts in the sea.
