The Tickville Spring quadrangle, in southwestern Salt Lake Valley and Northern Cedar Valley, is expected to experience a significant population increase over the next several decades. As urbanization expands into areas less suited for development, geologic hazards become of increasing concern in planning, design, and construction of new facilities. This study includes ten 1:24,000-scale GIS-based geologic hazard maps for shallow groundwater, liquefaction, surface fault rupture, flood hazards, landslides, rockfall, indoor radon potential, collapsible soils, expansive soils, and shallow bedrock. The maps are an aid for general planning to indicate where site-specific studies and geotechnical/geologic-hazard investigations are necessary. The accompanying report describes the hazards and provides background information on data sources and the nature and distribution of hazards.
