If you live in North Concord (and surrounding areas), you should expect to once again hear that annoying humming noise this week.
Recently there were many concerned Claycord residents talking about the loud “mysterious noise” in the Claycord area.
Many people had a wide variety of speculations as to what the noise was. It was the refinery releasing pressure from its lines and I believe the Police ending up confirming to Claycord it was indeed the refinery. This is something that is done at all refineries and is a safety measure.
I just wanted to make Claycord residents aware that starting tonight they’ll be once again releasing pressure from the lines and will be doing so through Sunday. Tesoro is having a “shut down” at the refinery starting Monday through Thanksgiving so that maintenance can be done at the refinery (this is routine maintenance…nothing is wrong). In order to “shut down” safely, they have to release pressure off the lines. So Claycord residents may once again hear the “mysterious” noises coming from the refinery.
Just wanted to make all aware so no one is up in arms about why the noises are happening again! It’s usual protocol to do this. The shut down is also normal safety protocol at ALL refineries.
Also a BIG thank you to all the men and women who will be working this shut down. It’s hard work and a lot of hours to get the job done!
Thanks for the information!
