Printer-friendly version

Saturday, September 24th @ 12:30pm

Join us for the City of Brisbane’s 30th Annual Day in the Park Event! As part of this year’s festivities, the Parks & Recreation department will be hosting a Pie Eating Contest immediately following the announcement of the Derby race winners. Come to the gazebo in the Community Park by 12:30pm to participate. (And be sure to bring your appetite.) We’ll group participants by age (youth & adults) as appropriate and prizes will be awarded for the best effort. (Although in this case, we all know bragging rights are even better.) We invite you to challenge a Councilmember, neighbor, spouse, sibling or friend and make it a true contest for all to witness. This could be one for the history books.

PG&E Notice to Residents

Printer-friendly version

On Saturday, August 20 PG&E crews will be installing the inline inspection launcher on the new pipeline within PG&E's  Geneva Substation. As part of this work PG&E will be venting natural gas to clear the line for welding to occur. Depending on work progress the small natural gas release will occur between 4:00 am and 6:00 am 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 pm and 6 pm) PG&E's  project team will purge the line to 100% natural gas in putting it into service. PG&E's  team has made contact with the businesses in proximity to the work.

 

Scheduled Dates: Saturday, August 20, 2016

Work to be completed:  Release of Natural Gas to Atmosphere

Approximate Time: between 4 am and 6 am; between 3 pm and 6 pm (depending on work progress)

Duration: 20 minutes and then 12 to 16 hours with air movers; 15 minutes for the purging

Location: Venting at Geneva Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard; Air Movers at Geneva and Bayshore Boulevard

 

PG&E want to ensure residents 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 PG&E's normal protocol, PG&E's  will continue to notify the appropriate public safety agencies, businesses and residents of this work.  PG&E is 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. 

 

PG&E's  customer care team will be notifying customers in proximity to the release by automated calls this evening.

 

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