As the days begin to warm in Moab, bikers and runners are out on the roads to mark the unofficial beginning of spring.
Human activity has induced earthquakes in the past, and Monday’s earthquake may be another such example, according to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. The bureau said in a statement Monday, March 4, that the earthquake in the area March 4 “was within the range of previously induced earthquakes” at a nearby water treatment facility.
An earthquake lightly shook town on Monday, March 4 at about 10:23 a.m. The event’s epicenter was near Bedrock, Colorado, about 40 miles from Moab.
