This new threshold is effective on July 1, 2023.  On January 11, 2021, PHMSA published the final rule, “Pipeline Safety: Gas Pipeline Regulatory Reform.” This rule revised the threshold for reporting of gas incidents by amending the definition of an incident in §191.3 and establishing procedures for periodic inflation adjustment for the property damage threshold criterion. The final rule went into effect on March 3, 2021.
