This study contains 10 1:24, 000 scale GIS based geologic hazard maps that include liquafaction, surface fault rupture, flood hazard, landslides, rock-fall, indoor radon potential, collapsible soils, expanisve soils, shallow bedrock and shallow groundwater potential. Also includes a 73 page accompanying report that describes the hazards and provides background information on data sources, the nature and distribution of hazards, and possible hazard reducation measures.The surficial sediments of the valley were mostly deposited by latest Pleistocene Lake Bonneville (Oviatt and others, 1992; Oviatt and others, ... and Currey, 1993; Keaton and others, 1993), the Oquirrh fault zone (Lund, 1996), and the Oquirrh Mountains (Cook, 1961; Tooker and Roberts, ... to avoid slope-stability problems.
