Residents on the west side of Belmont may smell a gas odor and/or hear noise that are the result of routine maintenance gas venting being conducted by PG&E on Wednesday afternoon.
Lt. Pat Halleran of the Belmont Police Department said he has received several calls from concerned residents, particularly in the Hallmark neighborhood, who smelled the gas odor.
"This is a gas venting procedure being conducted by PG&E and the odor and noise are normal and residents should not be concerned. The odor will dissipate shortly," said Halleran.
