In the wake of a major disaster, the recovery of major infrastructure systems will play a large role in our ability to recover quickly and effectively. Many recovery activities are highly dependent upon these systems. People will not be able to stay in their homes if water and wastewater services are not available, and businesses will not be able to reopen.The majority of the Bay Area population resides along two transportation corridors along major fault lines and nearly every major east-west connection that the Bay Area depends on upon for water, power, gas and transportation crosses several major faults. Safe and strong infrastructure systems coupled with speedy recovery of systems will ensure that the Bay Area remains strong after an earthquake.
