Gas Leak at Mariner Square (Unconfirmed)

Update, 11/4/2010 7:31 p.m. : Rick Zombeck of Alameda FD told Action Alameda News that earlier today that they had about 25 calls in a short period of time reporting a natural gas odor, and called PG&E out, who did their “due diligence” and found no source of a leak. Mr. Zombeck told Action Alameda News that there was a fuel transfer process going on at the FISC property by Starlight Marine – there’s a barge tied up in the estuary there. The operation has been shut down and no further fuel transfer operation will be conducted and the vessel should be pulled out of the area over the weekend. The Bay Area Air Quality Management agency has been notified. Zombeck says Alameda FD believes no fuel was spilled in the transfer operation and that they were apparently using the proper equipment for such an operation.

Update, 11/4/2010 6:30 p.m. : A spokesperson for PG&E told Action Alameda News that PG&E gas crews surveyed the area around Mariner Square and found no source of a gas leak, and they believe the odor is “naturally occurring” but they continue to look for a source. One resident that we spoke to said they smelled a “wall” of gas beginning around 4:25 p.m., and reported it to PG&E and the Alameda Fire Department.

West-end residents are reporting to Action Alameda News that there is a gas leak at Mariner Square. We have not confirmed with PG&E yet. More news as it comes in.

    I was on the bus coming through the webster tube at 5:35pm and the smell of gas was suffocating as we exited the tube on the Alameda side. 911 reported that the Fire Department was investigating.

  • We have another un-confirmed report that there may be some sort of fuel on the water in the estuary. The Coast Guard 11th command has been notified.
