PG&E will be assessing a section of pipeline in Menlo Park today (Oct. 11) as part of ongoing hydrostatic pressure test work, according to PG&E and San Mateo County Emergency Services officials.
Starting at 10 a.m. crews will be venting natural gas from a section of pipe near Sand Hill Road and Branner Drive.
Homes and businesses may smell gas as it dissipates into the atmosphere. PG&E officials say it is not harmful.
Anyone who has concerns about natural gas odors can call (800) 743-5000.
Service will not be interrupted during the venting work.
