On Saturday, July 16th, PG&E crews will be doing final connection of new pipeline within the Geneva Substation. As part of this work they will be venting natural gas to clear the line for welding to occur. The small natural gas release will occur around 2:00am at the corner of Geneva Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard. The release is only about 600 feet of pipe, so it should go quickly.

Depending on work progress later Saturday afternoon (between 3:00-6:00pm) the project team will purge the line to 100% natural gas in putting it into service. The PG&E team has made contact with the businesses in proximity to the work.

Work to be completed:  Release of Natural Gas to Atmosphere
Approximate Time: 2:00am and between 3:00-6:00pm (depending on work progress)
Duration: 20 minutes, then 12-16 hours with air movers; 15 minutes for the purging

We want to ensure you are provided with the most up-to-date information, but please note these times are subject to change. 

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 normal protocol, PG&E has and will continue to notify the appropriate public safety agencies, businesses and residents of this work.  They 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. The customer care team will be notifying customers in proximity to the release by automated calls this evening.

Safety is a top priority and PG&E encourages any resident who has questions or concerns about the smell of gas to call them 24 hours a day at 1-800-743-5000 or call 9-1-1 immediately.

National Park and Recreation Month

Printer-friendly version

DID YOU KNOW? Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. In 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives officially mandated July as “Park and Recreation Month.” Here are just a few of the ways that Parks & Recreation enhances our quality of life:

  • According to a 2014 article in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, higher levels of green space were associated with lower symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress.
  • The Centers for Disease Control found that increased access to places for physical activity led to a 25.6% increase in people exercising 3 or more times per week.
  • Children that have easy access to a playground are approximately five times more likely to have a healthy weight than children that do not have easy access to playgrounds.
  • Between 2000 and 2012, more than 85 studies have been published that link parks to better physical and mental health.
  • Parks, and particularly the trees in parks, have a direct and important impact on our quality of life. In fact, a 2006 study found that the air pollution removal value by urban trees in the United States is estimated to be 1.56 billion pounds per year – a value of $3.8 billion.

Parks and recreation services are vital for our communities—from protecting open space and natural resources, to helping fight obesity, to providing activities and resources for all walks of life—Park and Recreation Month encourages everyone to reflect on the exponential value parks and recreation bring to communities.   Parks and Recreation not only give us the opportunity to become our best selves, they also super power our communities economically, improve the environment and provide equitable public spaces for all.

This July, America is celebrating the super powers of parks and recreation and all the ways these local, community resources add value to our daily lives. We’re challenging everyone to discover their super powers at our parks and recreation facilities whether it’s running a mile, swimming a designated distance, meeting a fitness goal, building a new network of friends, or finding your green thumb. We hope you'll celebrate the month of July with us through parks & recreation!
