Silver Creek Fault
The Silver Creek Fault is a potentially seismically active northwest-southeast trending geological fault structure in Santa Clara County, California. The Silver Creek Fault runs through and adjacent to the 25 miles (40 km) long and 5 miles (8 km) wide Evergreen Basin, and generally lies parallel and between the Guadalupe River and Coyote Creek in the city of San Jose.
No historic activity of the Silver Creek Fault has been recorded. The Silver Creek Fault is parallel to the Hayward Fault, which is located 5 miles (8 km) to the east. New research in 2003 suggests an extension of the Silver Creek Fault may run the entire length of the East Bay.
