This VastoInforma link would seem to indicate it was around at least in 2017, but I guess that's just a bigger worry that nothing has been done. Some of the pictures you can find make you wonder how safe it is to use!

I think I'm right in saying that these 'minor' quakes are actually good news in that they relieve some of the pressure build-up. What's really grim is when nothing moves for decades / centuries, the pressure builds up & up so that when it goes, it REALLY goes.

there are not enough small earthquakes to relieve enough stress to prevent the large events. In fact, it would take 32 magnitude 5's, 1000 magnitude 4's, or 32,000 magnitude 3's to equal the energy produced in one magnitude 6 event......sourced from The Berkeley Seismological Laboratory.
