PG&E to vent Sand Hill Road pipeline

Residents could smell natural gas

Pacific Gas & Electric will be venting natural gas from a pipeline in the Menlo Park area today (Monday, Oct. 17) at 10 a.m. in preparation for hydrostatic pressure testing, county officials said Sunday.

Homes and businesses in the area of Sand Hill Road and Branner Drive may smell some natural gas during the process, but service will not be interrupted and the smell should dissipate quickly, according to the San Mateo County Office of Emergency Services.

Anyone with concerns about natural gas odors in or around their home or business should call 1-800-743-5000 so that PG&E can determine the cause.
