What is the Methane Zone?

In the late 1800s, Los Angeles was booming with aggressive oil drilling. More than a century later we are left with thousands of oil wells, most of which are abandoned. Methane hazard zone is a specific area within the LA City district that has a high risk of explosion hazard, due to known concentrations of methane gas underground.

The Methane Zone is predominantly based on the location of these oil wells. The Los Angeles department of building and safety requires Methane Mitigation if a property is located within the Methane Zone.
