Notes
http://www.sonoma.edu/Geology/wright/bhead.html
Their studies of that site indicated that there were no active faults in the vicinity. However, during construction, geologists found a new fault 5 miles off shore, and the design had to be altered for more earthquake protection. Unfortunately, workers installed new bracing for pipes from blueprints printed backwards, so more delays occurred before plant completion, all because of earthquakes and geology.
