SAN DIEGO, May 21, 2020 – As San Diegans continue to spend more time at home, SDG&E has received many questions from customers about work being done on or near private property. We want to reassure our customers that great care is being taken as we continue to inspect and ensure the safe operation of natural gas lines in San Diego and ask for the public’s support in keeping our employees and community safe.
“At times we may need to access a customer's property to inspect SDG&E equipment, such as a gas meter, in order to keep our system safe and reliable. To protect our customers and employees, we are following the guidelines set forth by the State of California and the CDC,” said Gas Field Operations Manager Rick Condry. “The safety of our customers, our equipment and the communities we serve is our top priority. We appreciate our customers understanding and respectfully ask that they support us in our efforts to practice social distancing protocols when performing our work, which may occasionally require being on their property.”
Customers can learn more about gas safety at SDG&E gas safety page. If you suspect a gas leak, call 911 or call SDG&E at 1-800-611-7343.
