Kaikoura liquefaction susceptibility (2019)

Zones showing areas of different liquefaction susceptibility and recommended level of liquefaction assessment to be undertaken before building on the site.  The zones are based mainly on geological, soil and groundwater information, and information collected after the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake.The zones do not show the likelihood of liquefaction over any given time frame, they simply show the susceptibility of the sediments to liquefaction during strong earthquake shaking based on the properties of the soil.  Likelihoods of liquefaction over a given time frame would be assessed in a site specific investigation and design stage, if required.Accompanying report is Golder Associates Ltd, 2019, Liquefaction Study for Kaikoura District. available from Environment Canterbury or Kaikoura District Council.Drawn by Golder Associates Ltd, 2019
