Public Notice

Message from PG&E

At Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) our first priority is to keep you and your neighbors safe, and we are dedicated to enhancing the integrity and health of the natural gas pipelines in your neighborhood.

As part of PG&E’s commitment to ensure your safety, we will be upgrading a portion of the natural gas distribution system that serves homes and businesses in your neighborhood. We will be working on High Street, Hayden Avenue, Pinecrest Avenue, Eastside Avenue, Palm Avenue and Litchfield Avenue in Sebastopol. We expect work to start May 26 and continue through November. Weather and other factors affecting safe working conditions may change our schedule. If work will be taking place on your property, a local PG&E representative will contact you prior to the start.

What you can expect
We will assess and replace a portion of your natural gas distribution lines, most of which are located under the street or on private property. This work may also involve upgrading your gas meter. During construction, you may see PG&E, contractor trucks and other equipment. All personnel are required to carry valid photo identification and are happy to provide identification upon request.  

We will continue to perform this critical construction work during the COVID-19 pandemic. The crews completing this work will take social distancing precautionary measures to help protect the health and safety of our customers and employees.

While we empty the lines for replacement in a controlled and safe manner, you may hear a loud, steady noise and smell a small amount of natural gas. This is normal while crews are working, but we encourage anyone with concerns to call 1-800-743-5000. In order to ensure your safety while we connect the new line, a temporary service interruption may be necessary. We will notify you should there be any interruption in your gas service and will schedule a gas relight with you at your convenience. You can also schedule a gas relight by calling 1-800-743-5000.

Potential Traffic impacts
This work may affect traffic (lane closures, traffic control, etc.) at times. Driveway access may be affected, but crews can provide access within a few minutes of your request. Please plan for minor delays if crews are working outside your home or business.

Your local contact if you have questions
Please contact your local PG&E representative, Scott Hart at 707-577-1062 or send an email to gasprojectinfo@pge.com. Thank you for your patience as we enhance the safety and reliability of your natural gas system.
