These areas are currently zoned business and high density residential, and are both on the surface of alluvial fans - cone shaped landforms made of sediment which has made its way to the valley floor from hill country streams above. This means the land in the Brewery Creek and Reavers Lane areas can be affected by natural hazards such as rockfalls, debris flows, liquefaction, and flooding.
