Wagwater Fault-Heubeck and Mann (1991) cite Green (1977) for information on Wagwater Fault. It is a 200-500m wide, reverse fault dipping 57o. The youngest rocks deformed by it are Pliocene in age. Compared with the Enriquillo-Plantain Garden Fault Zone in Haiti (1. 5km wide) and in the Dominican Republic (1-3 km wide), this is a relatively narrow fault zone.
