Geologic Hazard and Abatement Districts (GHADs)

About the California Association of GHADs

The 1979 Beverly Act provided for the establishment of Geologic Hazard Abatement Districts (GHADs) as independent public agencies to oversee geologic hazards in defined geographic areas. There are over 35 GHADs in California working to prevent, mitigate and abate geologic hazards. Click on the link to see a list of the Board of Directors.
