Burlingame residents may detect a natural gas odor this afternoon while PG&E crews vent a pipeline near Mills Canyon Park, a utility spokesman said.
Crews are scheduled to release natural gas from a pipe in the area of Adeline Drive and Alvarado Avenue around 1 p.m. in order to perform work on the line, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said.
Molica said a gas smell from the venting may be briefly noticeable for about 10 minutes, but that the gas will dissipate and is not harmful.
Customers' service will not be affected by the pipe work, he said.
Any concerns about natural gas odors can be called into PG&E at (800) 743-5000.
