Pacific Gas and Electric Co. workers are busy in Patterson this week, as they tie in a new natural gas line to a pipeline designed to supply natural gas to a Turlock Irrigation District plant in Ceres. Work is beginning on the line near Prune and Elm avenues this evening, Nov. 29, and will last for three days.
The company will purge the lines of natural gas, so some customers may smell the substance in the air. However, no service interruptions are expected, PG&E spokeswoman Nicole Liebelt said. The purging is expected to last three mornings starting at about 7 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 30.
