Results of collocated lifeline exposure to hazards resulting from the April 18, 2018, HayWired earthquake scenario for counties and cities in the San Francisco Bay area, California

Metadata Updated: October 26, 2023

These data are a compilation of potential collocations between various lifeline infrastructure systems (transportation, water supply and wastewater, oil and gas, electric power, and telecommunications) components and their potential multi-hazard exposure resulting from the HayWired earthquake scenario, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake occurring on the Hayward Fault on April 18, 2018, with an epicenter in the city of Oakland, CA. Existing hazard data (surface offset, ground shaking, landslide, liquefaction, and fire following earthquake) were combined into a single multi-hazard intensity surface developed for this purpose. Several combinations of potential collocations between various lifeline infrastructure systems components--all lifeline components, transmission-level components only, distribution-level components only, more societally critical components only, and less societally critical components only--were considered for this analysis. The potential collocations have had community and county information assigned as an aid to summarizing results in the dataset. These comma-delimited .CSV datasets were developed and intended for use in standalone spreadsheet applications such as Microsoft Excel. These data support the following publication: Jones, J.L., Wein, A.M., Schweikert, A.E., and Ballanti, L.R., 2019, Lifeline infrastructure and collocation exposure to the HayWired earthquake scenario--A summary of hazards and potential service disruptions, chap.
