Hisssssss! That’s Just Air You Hear on North Pleasant View

SANATOGA PA – What’s that hissing sound on North Pleasant View Road? It’s harmless, the Lower Pottsgrove Police Department reports, but it may be audible through the first week of September.

Contractors for several months have been installing new natural gas lines along the length of North Pleasant View. Now they’re testing them, and the department said residents in its 100 block “may hear air escaping from a ground vent … This is only air and it does not pose a threat to the public,” its CrimeWatch website added Thursday (Aug. 6, 2020).

The department, township Fire Marshall Lew Babel, and Code Enforcement Officer Joe Groff all were similarly notified.
