Playa Del Rey Community Notifications

Community Notifications are issued when SoCalGas reports a release of materials to state agencies.

Date Details
  • SoCalGas has received reports of natural gas-like odors in the Playa del Rey area.
  • At this time, we believe the odors are related to operations at our Playa del Rey storage field.
  • A pressure relief valve opened as designed to prevent overpressure, resulting in a release of gas to atmosphere over the course of approximately 10 minutes.
  • The venting has ceased and the odor has dissipated.
  • The release did not present a health or safety risk to the community.
  • Customers who suspect a natural gas leak should call SoCalGas at 1-800-427-2200.
  • We inspect every home or business that reports an odor complaint to confirm it does not have an unsafe situation, and if we find a problem, we address it.
