The Alquist-Priolo Earthquake Fault Zoning (AP) Act was passed into law following the February 9, 1971 San Fernando earthquake. This layer maps the active fault zones identified by the Act. The intent of the Act is to ensure public safety by prohibiting the siting of most structures for human occupancy across traces of active faults that constitute a potential hazard to structures from surface faulting or fault creep.
