Regulation 13 Rule 1: Significant Methane Releases

Learn about the Air District's development process for Regulation 13, Rule 1, which would address significant leaks and releases of methane in the Bay Area.

Find out about the status and anticipated timeline of the rule development process. Information on hearings, workshops, and other events is provided below, along with supporting documents and materials.

The Air District is developing a new regulation to address significant releases of methane in the Bay Area. Regulation 13, Rule 1: Significant Methane Releases would serve as a general backstop rule to address releases of methane, and is part of the Air District's Basin-Wide Methane Strategy (as outlined in the 2017 Clean Air Plan).

The Air District held a series of workshops on the development of Rule 13-1 and other rule development activity addressing climate pollutants, odors, VOCs, and toxics in late 2018. The Air District also released a Workshop Report and draft Rule 13-1, and accepted comments on these materials.

Documents

Supporting materials, such as staff reports, regulatory language, and other technical documents related to rule development, are posted throughout the development process.
