California Proposes New Well Stimulation Regulations

On November 18, 2013, California's Department of Conservation released proposed hydraulic fracturing regulations, which include requiring oil and gas producers to have permits in order to stimulate wells by hydraulic fracturing or acid treatment.  Under the proposed regulations, a producer must disclose the date of stimulation, the location of the well, and the types of chemicals and amount of water used.  In addition to those disclosures, the proposed regulations require producers to notify neighboring owners and tenants before stimulating a well and provide them an opportunity to have their water tested by a third party.  The regulation further provides that producers must monitor well pressures before, during, and after well stimulation.

The proposed regulations are available here: Proposed Regulations

  1. As a tenant, there are certain rights you should be aware of to protect yourself.
    California renters rights give you protection against landlords who wish to abuse the system.
    Unfortunately, many tenants do not take the time to understand their rights and get taken advantage of.
    The following explores some of the most important and most relevant rights tenants have in California.
    This is only a small listing of information that can be found at our site to protect yourself.
    Renters rights in Los Angeles are largely the same as in other California cities,
    so this information is relevant regardless of where you live. First of all,
    a landlord can never discriminate against a tenant. A landlord cannot refuse a room to or harass a tenant based on race,
    color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, immigration status, religion, national origin,
    disability, or if they are pregnant or have children. Landlords must also allow all service animals,
    regardless of pet policies within the building. Your landlord also cannot try to retaliate against you if you take action against his unlawful actions. For example,
    if you file a claim with an agency about your landlord, he cannot legally raise your rent, evict you,
    or stop providing services because of it.
