PG&E crews are working this week to fix an underground gas leak near .
PG&E Spokeswoman Jana Morris confirmed Saturday morning that there is a small, underground gas leak on the 7600 block of Driftwood Way.
"On an unknown date in June, a customer called PG&E about the smell of gas" said Morris. "A gas officer responded to the site and determined a small leak at the location. Due to the size of the leak identified, crews scheduled the repair in September as ratings did not indicate a hazard to public safety."
Morris says the repair was originally scheduled in September and expedited the repair due to customer's concerns for safety.
"Due to the customer concerns, we wanted to expedite the repair," commented Morris. "We understand our customer's concerns and want them to know their safety is our number one priority. We have not yet dug down to the leak with respect to the line. At most one, and hopefully none, of our customers will lose gas service during the repair."
Morris says there will be more marking on the sidewalk as part of the preparation for the upcoming repair and that customers should not be alarmed.
PG&E spokeswoman, Tamar Sarkissian, told Patch Monday morning that in accordance with PG&E policy and the California Public Utilities Commission guidelines, they have up to 90 days to make a repair to a leak this size.
"The timeline for the repair all depends on the size of the leak," said Sarkissian.
Sarkissian says they are not required to notify surrounding facilities about a leak if there is no threat posed.
According to Sarkissian, the repair to the leak will be made sometime on August 13.
"It is not known how long the repair will take," commented Sarkissian. "We will know once we get underground."
A neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous, says PG&E workers have been out on Driftwood Way at least four times since June.
Joe Peterson, who lives in one of the homes in front of the markings, says he has never been contacted by PG&E about the gas leak.
"This leak is a very different situation than the as San Bruno's was a gas transmission line which is a completely different size and type of pipe," said Sarkissian.
Superintendent, Parvin Ahmadi, wrote:
"As always the safety of our students and staff is our number one priority, and we will work closely with PG&E and the to be prepared for a safe start of school."
Driftwood Way, a residential street in Pleasanton, is west of , which is about to start back to school on August 28.
