On Monday, October 22, as part of the ongoing improvements to a natural gas system, PG&E plans to vent natural gas from sections of a pipe in Oakley.
PG&E plans to vent natural gas from sections of a pipe in Oakley from 5 p.m. to midnight. As gas is vented at 5900 Bridgehead Road, the smell of natural gas and the sound of it venting from the pipe may be noticeable in the area, depending on wind direction. The natural gas will quickly dissipate into the atmosphere and will not be harmful.
Additional work will be taking place on Tuesday, and while there won’t be noise, there may be some odor of gas.
PG&E says safety is always their top priority, and we encourage anyone who has concerns about natural gas odors in or around their home or business to call us at 1-800-743-5000 so we can safely determine the specific cause.
Service to customers should not be interrupted during this work.
