Story: Active faults
The most recent rupture on the Wellington Fault has formed a low, straight scarp across California Park, Upper Hutt. Subdivision of the land in the 1960s took account of the fault, so that no houses were built directly across it. It forms the centre berm in California Drive (upper left). The position of the fault is marked with arrows.
