Guatemala Earthquake 1976. South along a secondary fault of the Mixco zone that intersects an excavation for a sedimentation basin in Guatemala City's new water treatment plant. The fault, which dips 60 degrees west (to the right) is visible in the wall of the excavation in the background and was exposed in the line of pits in the floor of the excavation. Soil horizons in the Pleistocene tephra in the wall of the excavation are offset at least 7 meters, indicating repeated movement on this same strand during late Quaternary time. Because of the faulting, the design of the settling basin had to be changed to avoid the fault trace. Available information suggests that at least part of the 5 centimeters displacement...
