Can I break my apartment lease, Pressure Regulator Station built too close breaking city code?

The fire department told me that Pressure Regulator Stations had to be at least 300 feet away from a residential structure, from my mesurements the station is about 165 feet away from the apartment complex i live in. These stations are known to impact the enviroment in negative ways because of the toxins released and chemicals used to drill for gas or oil.

    If the present city code existed before the apartment complex was built, you may have a case, but I am willing to bet that is not the scenario. Building codes get adjusted all the time, but the structures that precede them get pass. In addition no one was trying to hide the pressure regulator stations from you before you signed the lease, but you did anyway. But if you are able to prove your health directly affected by the station you might be able to get a judge to agree and let you out of your lease but this would take a good deal of expense on your part to have the air inspected and reported by professionals.
