Upcoming Gas Venting:


PG&E will be conducting several gas venting operations next week, one of the sites being at the Healy Station in Rollingwood.


Below is the announcement as provided by PG&E. If there are any concerns please contact PG&E at the number below and feel free to spread the word!


PG&E gas crews have one (1) upcoming, planned venting of natural gas to atmosphere on a section of Line 132 in the City of South San Francisco, mainly near the intersection of Holly Avenue and Hillside Blvd, plus a secondary site at PG&E’s Healy Station in San Bruno.


The main planned gas release will take place on: Monday, October 21, 2019 (South San Francisco) Work to be completed: Release of Natural Gas to Atmosphere Approximate Time: 11am to 3pm Location: Just north of the intersection of Holly Avenue and Hillside Blvd, South San Francisco This is the main venting site for this project.


Secondary Site (San Bruno) Monday-Friday, October 21-25, 2019 Location: Healy Station, on Crestwood Drive, north of Rollingwood Drive, San Bruno Approximate Start Time: Appx one hour after venting completion at primary site in South San Francisco


Once the main venting is complete, air movers will be placed at the main venting site in SSF and also at Healy Station on Crestwood Drive in San Bruno. The use of air movers could generate odor calls in the immediate vicinity. The air movers will be in-place until work completion, scheduled for appx 10PM, Friday, October 25.


We want to ensure you are provided with the most up-to-date information, but please note these times are subject to change. We will inform you of any scheduling changes as they occur.


Depending on the location of gas venting and weather patterns, there may be a smell of natural gas. The pipeline is cleared of gas utilizing a safe and common technique. As part of our normal protocol, we have and will continue to notify the appropriate public safety agencies, businesses and residents of this work.


We are taking steps to mitigate noise and odor and have scheduled the work to create the least impact possible, however it is likely that the work will result in some noise and odor.


Safety is our top priority and we encourage anyone who has questions or concerns about the smell of gas to call PG&E 24 hours a day at 1-800-PGE (743) 5000 or call 911 immediately.
