I think the answer is

Furnace Creek Fault

Reasoning:

The question is a pun - we're looking for an earthquake fault, not a fault in the sense of 'defect' or 'problem'. If you reverse image search in Google, you find this
Which has the tagline Furnace Creek Fault
(Also the blog linking it is pretty interesting)

    $\begingroup$ What does Furnace Creek Fault mean? $\endgroup$ – Xandawesome May 28 '15 at 14:36
  • $\begingroup$ @Xandawesome the term fault line is used to describe earthquake causes. Furnace Creek Fault is name of a fault. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fault_(geology) $\endgroup$ – kanchirk May 28 '15 at 15:08
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, I get it, it's a pun. The question suggests 'fault' as in 'defect' but it's actually a fault as in an earthquake fault. $\endgroup$ – dwjohnston May 28 '15 at 23:04

It's the Furnace Creek fault system -- which parallels the San Andreas one but isn't the same.

Is it because

the water is missing? I am not sure, but the soil looks like the soil on a river bottom.
