This series includes technical reports prepared by faculty, students and staff who are associated with the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center at Stanford University. While the primary focus of Blume Center is earthquake engineering, many of the reports in this series encompass broader topics in structural engineering and materials, computational mechanics, geomechanics, structural health monitoring, and engineering life-cycle risk assessment. Each report includes acknowledgments of the specific sponsors for the report and underlying research. In addition to providing research support, the Blume Center provides administrative support for maintaining and disseminating the technical reports. For more information about the Blume Center and its activities, see https://blume.stanford.edu.
A seismic hazard map for the region described as "Reach B" for the California Water Project is developed in this report. "Reach B" for this work is defined as that portion of the California Water Project which is west of the branch of Tehachapi Afterbay. The key existing and future facilities within this reach include:
1. Oso Pumping Plant
2. Quail Lake
3. Peace Valley Pipeline (future)
4. Pyramid Power Plant (future)
5. Pyramid Dam and Lake
6. Angeles Tunnel
7. Castaic Power Plant
8. Castaic Dam and Lake
9. Castaic Lagoon
10. Southern California 0 & M Center
This report discusses the iso-acceleration maps. Relative "risks" of various sites and their implications are presented. Data base and seismic sources were discussed in the first report which was about "Reach C" of the California Water Project.
