As oil and gas well completions utilizing multistage hydraulic fracturing have become more commonplace, the potential for seismicity induced by the deep disposal of frac‐related wastewater and the hydraulic fracturing process itself has become an increasingly important issue (e.g., National Academy of Science [NAS], 2012). Although it is rare for a wastewater disposal well to induce felt seismicity, there have been several cases over the past half century that identify strong relationships between injected fluids and seismicity (e.g., Healy et al., 1968; Nicholson and Wesson, 1990; McGarr et al., 2002; Evans et al.,...
