Under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), certain types of work on a property may require additional environmental review.
“Earthquake-related Hazards” means any hazard of any kind that can be caused in whole or in part by an earthquake and includes but is not limited to hazards relating to liquefaction, earthquake-related landslides or debris flows, earthquake-related fires, earthquake-related flooding, and tsunamis and seiches, in addition to direct effects from ground shaking.
A property located in this zone may be required to submit an Environmental Evaluation Application for any land improvement project. Additionally, any new construction is subject to a mandatory Interdepartmental Project Review.
The review may require additional structural enforcement to any structure on this lot. Contact a structural engineer for additional info. Read project type exceptions.
