this smell of natural gas is not just in western ranch it is in west stockton as well. It woke me up again this morning! I am getting sick of this smell. What is PG&E doing about it?
I pay alot of money to them and I keep things green! It seems to me that there green is not working for them and I will be the one that has to pay in the long run!

It's not just Weston ranch or West stockton, It's also northern stockton. Lets just put it this way. It's all over the place.

Well odorless natural gas {methane CH4} has a foul smelling organic sulfide mercaptan added to it
so leaks in the home/outdoors can be safely detected, and reported! My God just call the local Gas company, and they will respond immediately, the same way they will come to your home, and start-up your fireplace/water heater pilot-light!
In a rural area such as Stockton the smell could also come from manure, spread as a fertilizer!

Hi Karen, Robert and Frank,

I never gave it much thought but my Mom says, by side of the yard is a sewer smell. It's not all the time but she has asked neighbors and they told her sewer??

Thanks, for posting I'll tell her, let's call PGE to make sure it's not something else.

Thnk you, you are welcome 'osarah Stockton, CA #4'! We have the same smell problem in Malibu CA, whence an integrated subterranean sewer system,
{my God even the early Romans, and Greeks BC had
them!} has never been installed, favoring a chemically treated daily emptied porta-potty
process, often leakage vented to atmosphere, by pumps in large condo appartments complexes!

Terrible smell permeating the air outside here in midtown Stockton. Distinctly heavy and sweet, different from a sewage odor, more akin to rotten corpse. I was disturbed from my rest smelling a foul odor in my home. I got up to inspect and realized it was in fact blowing in the open windows from outdoors.

TRUE. I live by Louis Park and the smell is horrible. I can't stand it and Idk maybe the air got contaminated because my family and I got watery/itchy eyes after being in the park on Saturday. It suddenly started smelling super bad it was a very strong smell.
