“Resilience by Design” is now an active City of Los Angeles project
We are all aware that a large magnitude earthquake is going to influence Los Angeles in the near future. The City of Angels was recently ranked the most vulnerable metropolis in the world outside of Asia.
However, knowing that Los Angeles is long overdue for a large magnitude earthquake and comprehending what the effect of the earthquake will have on Los Angeles, are two very different things.
Los Angeles’s Mayor Eric Garcetti has announced that the L.A. city administration will partner with U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Dr. Lucile M. Jones to develop earthquake resilience strategies for Los Angeles. The document that has been issued is titled “Resilience by Design” (click here to download the document)
Dr. Jones intention is to work with the city administration to determine criteria to protect the vulnerable infrastructure that will include water supply, power, communications, firefighting and both private and government owned structures in Los Angeles that will be subject to the effects of an earthquake.
