Is LDS Assembly Hall on Fault Line?

Summarized by Eric Bunker

Salt Palace: Do It Right And Pay the Price
Salt Lake Tribune 9Jan99
By Lee Siegel: Salt Lake Tribune

Because of an error interpreting a Federal geologic map, Salt Lake County officials missed an active fault line that runs underneath the Salt Palace in downtown Salt Lake City. The City discovered the fault when construction on an expansion to the Salt Palace started last year, putting the expansion on hold.

While geologists are sorting out the problem, the path of the fault remains in question. As a result of the error, a number of downtown buildings have been built or modified without the required investigation to see if they are on the fault line. The buildings include the Salt Palace, the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, Gateway Tower West, a parking garage and the LDS Assembly Building.
