SEISMIC HAZARD ZONES

Earthquake Fault Zones
Zone boundaries are delineated by straight-line segments that
connect encircled turning points; the boundaries define the zone
encompassing active faults that constitute a potential hazard to
structures from surface faulting or fault creep such that avoidance
as described in Public Resources Code Section 2621.5(a) would
be required.

Liquefaction Zones
Areas where historical occurrence of liquefaction, or local geological,
geotechnical and ground water conditions indicate a potential for
permanent ground displacements such that mitigation as defined in
Public Resources Code Section 2693(c) would be required.

Active Fault Traces
Faults considered to have been active during Holocene time and
to have potential for surface rupture; solid line where accurately
located, long dash where approximately located, short dash where
inferred, dotted where concealed; query (?) indicates additional
uncertainty. Evidence of historic offset indicated by year of
earthquake-associated event or C for displacement caused by fault
creep.

Earthquake-Induced Landslide Zones
Areas where previous occurrence of landslide movement, or local
topographic, geological, geotechnical and subsurface water conditions
indicate a potential for permanent ground displacements such that
mitigation as defined in Public Resources Code Section 2693(c) would
be required.

4) Liquefaction zones may also contain areas susceptible to the effects of earthquake-induced landslides.
This situation typically exists at or near the toes of existing landslides, downslope from rockfall or debris flow
source areas, or adjacent to steep stream banks.

Faults shown are the basis for establishing the boundaries of the Earthquake Fault Zones.

3) The identification and location of these faults are based on the best available data. However, the quality of
data used is varied. Traces have been depicted as accurately as possible at a map scale of 1:24,000.

1) This map may not show all faults that have the potential for surface fault rupture, either within the Earthquake
Fault Zones or outside their boundaries. Additionally, this map may not show all areas that have the potential for
liquefaction, landsliding, strong earthquake ground shaking or other earthquake and geologic hazards. Also, a
single earthquake capable of causing liquefaction or triggering landside failure will not uniformly affect the entire
area zoned.

5) Landslide zones on this map were determined, in part, by adapting methods first developed by the U.S.
Geological Survey (USGS). Landslide hazard maps prepared by the USGS typically use experimental approaches
to assess earthquake-induced and other types of landslide hazards. Although aspects of these new methodologies
may be incorporated in future CGS seismic hazard zone maps, USGS maps should not be used as substitutes for
these Official SEISMIC HAZARD ZONES maps.
6) USGS base map standards provide that 90 percent of cultural features be located within 40 feet (horizontal
accuracy) at the scale of this map. The identification and location of liquefaction and earthquake-induced
landslide zones are based on available data. However, the quality of data used is varied. The zone boundaries
depicted have been drawn as accurately as possible at this scale.
7) Information on this map is not sufficient to serve as a substitute for the geologic and geotechnical site
investigations required under Chapters 7.5 and 7.8 of Division 2 of the California Public Resources Code.
8) Seismic Hazard Zones identified on this map may include developed land where delineated hazards have
already been mitigated to city or county standards. Check with your local building/planning department for
information regarding the location of such mitigated areas.
9) DISCLAIMER: The State of California and the Department of Conservation make no representations or
warranties regarding the accuracy of the data from which these maps were derived. Neither the State nor the
Department shall be liable under any circumstances for any direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential
damages with respect to any claim by any user or any third party on account of or arising from the use of this map.
