Pacific Gas and Electric Co., which has owned the property since 1930, announced this week that part of its service yard at 502 E. Grant Line Road has been decontaminated.
According to Nicole Liebelt, PG&E spokeswoman, the pollution at the yard didn’t pose any risks to the neighboring community. The work, she said, is part of an effort to clean up its property.
“It’s a voluntary program where we’re looking to responsibly manage our historical sites and our legacy operations,” Liebelt said.
The land was once used as a location for the production of manufactured gas, which was a popular fuel in the United States before the widespread use of natural gas. The yard is now used as an office location and a service yard.
