"this plant has more active faults than any other plant.”
Well... it should be OK because you say so..
NRC defends Diablo Canyon earthquake study at meetings

The Shoreline Fault was discovered in 2008 just offshore of the plant. At its closest point, it is only 2,000 feet from Diablo Canyon’s reactors.
Anti-nuclear groups including the San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace take issue with the agency’s conclusions. They contend that the study underplays the possibility that the Shoreline Fault is connected to other faults and could produce a stronger quake than thought, a quake that key safety equipment at Diablo Canyon may not be able to withstand.
The group wants the agency to wait until an independent group of seismologists completes a comprehensive evaluation of the earthquake threat facing the plant due in March 2015.
However, Kammerer said this seismic hazard re-evaluation would not change the findings of the Shoreline evaluation.
“If there is any nuclear plant in the U.S. that we seismically understand, it’s this plant,” she said. “And that’s appropriate because this plant has more active faults than any other plant.”
