SoCal Gas release on April 20 & 21

A note from Kristine Scott from SoCal Gas.

Good afternoon,

Last month the Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas®) began maintenance work on one of our natural gas pipelines. This work is part of our system-wide plan to further enhance the safety of our pipelines throughout the communities we serve.

What to expect
During this maintenance work, you will see SoCalGas and its contractor’s trucks and heavy equipment. Crews will be working Monday through Saturday from approximately 6:00am-8:00pm.

On Wednesday, April 20th, and Thursday, April 21st of this week, there will be noise coming from our pipeline as we complete different phases of the maintenance work.  The noise should last approximately 15 minutes each day. In addition to the noise, you might notice a rotten-egg like odor of natural gas. Natural gas is non-toxic, odorless and colorless. For this reason, we add a minute amount of a pungent odorant to natural gas to help detect leaks. The odorant is safe but its smell has been compared to the smell of rotten eggs.

We are sorry for any inconvenience or annoyance this may have caused our neighbors and area residents. We appreciate your patience and cooperation.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Regional Public Affairs Manager, Kristine Scott at kscott@semprautilities.com or 909-809-0317.

Thank you.
