PG&E will host an open house this week in Sacramento to talk to residents about upcoming hydrostatic pressure testing.
Customers who live near pressure-test locations have received letters with information about the hydrostatic pressure tests.
Experts from PG&E will be on hand to answer questions on the testing. Poster boards will provide additional information.
Since 2011, PG&E has tested the pressure on 221 miles of gas transmission pipelines. Most of these were in urban areas, known as high-consequence areas. This video explains how a pipeline pressure test works.
Here is the date and location of the open house:
- Thursday, Oct. 4, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Smythe Academy of Arts & Sciences multipurpose room (2781 Northgate Road, Sacramento)
PG&E offers a detailed explanation of the testing procedure on its website. For more information, visit www.pge.com/progress.
