As part of the process of Pacific Gas & Electric to modernize its pipeline transmission, the utility will host an open house in Mountain View this week.
At the open house on Thursday, April 26 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Crittenden Middle School, engineers and staff will explain how the company plans to replace portions of its large transmission gas pipelines as part of its extensive, multi-year program to improve the safety of its natural gas system.
The customer will not be responsible for the cost of the replacement, according to PG&E.
The utility will use standard methods used across the country to replace the pipelines with modern material.
In most cases, PG&E stated, gas service will continue without interruption during the replacements.
Experts from PG&E will be on hand to answer questions at Crittenden School, 1701 Rock St. Poster boards will provide additional information.
For more information on natural gas safety, customers can visit www.pge.com/gas or call PG&E’s gas system helpline at 1-888-743-7431.
