PG&E will host an open house this week in Fresno to talk to residents about an upcoming pipeline replacement.
The utility is replacing portions of its large transmission gas pipelines as part of its extensive, multiyear program to improve the safety of its natural gas system. Replacement pipelines are made with modern materials and installed using safe and proven installation methods that are used throughout the nation.
In most cases, gas service will continue without interruption during the replacement projects.
Experts from PG&E will be on hand to answer questions on the replacement, which is expected to last several weeks. Poster boards will provide additional information.
Here is the time and location of the open house:
- Thursday, Aug. 16, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Biola Community Center (4925 N. 7th St., Fresno, CA 93606).
