Earthquake Fault Zone

Earthquake fault zones are regulatory zones around active faults. The zones are used to prohibit the location of critical facilities and structures designed for human occupancy from being built astride an active fault. Earthquake Fault Zones are plotted on topographic maps at a scale of 1‐inch equals 2,000 feet. The zones vary in width, but average about one‐quarter mile wide.
