Hayward Fault lecture and tour
Submitted By Joyce Blueford
Who would ever think that the pristine lake behind the Fremont BART Station has recorded precise movement of the Hayward Fault for thousands of years? Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon is a successful restoration project owned by Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District and managed by the Math Science Nucleus, a non profit organization. The lake is a large sag pond caused by movement along the Hayward Fault.
During the tour, we will talk about where the Hayward Fault is in Fremont and what features you can see around town that helps trace its location. Future plans for a trail from the Fremont BART Station to the proposed Irvington BART Station will also be discussed. Dr. Joyce Blueford, a local geologist, will lead the tour and a conversation about an Earthquake Greenbelt in Fremont and earthquakes and their consequences in southern Alameda County.
