Subject: Building on Fault
What restrictions do California
(and other states) have as far as building near fault zones?
is there a minimum required distance through the nominal fault line?
Is there a restriction on the type of construction within a certain
distance of the fault line? I.e. you can't build a nuclear reactor on
top of a known fault line?
When did restrictions start going into
When existing buildings are renovated / converted does there
distance to a fault line become an issue?
What document / code are
there requirements/restrictions contained in?
At what level of
government (city / county / state) is this type of restriction promulgated?
