PG&E will be assessing a section of pipeline in Menlo Park this morning as part of ongoing hydrostatic pressure test work, according to PG&E and San Mateo County Emergency Services officials.

Starting at 10 a.m. crews will be venting natural gas from a section of pipe near Sand Hill Road and Branner Drive.

Homes and businesses may smell gas as it dissipates into the atmosphere. PG&E officials say it is not harmful.

Anyone who has concerns about natural gas odors can call (800) 743-5000.

Service will not be interrupted during the venting work.
