... insufficient basic data on fault locations and properties, in situ stresses, pore pressures, and rock properties; and 4) current predictive models cannot properly quantify or estimate the seismic efficiency and mode of failure for faults.
From page 32...
... One participant noted the need to consider the lay people in communities that have been affected by induced seismic activity and those who have not yet experienced such activity but live in areas where wastewater injection related to oil and gas development takes place. The lay public has difficulty understanding risk and the participant emphasized the idea of discussion among industry, regulators, researchers, and the lay public to describe what ‘managed seismicity' could mean and what kinds of alternatives exist to injection (such as water reuse)
