Readoption of Emergency Regulations for the Continued Implementation of the Groundwater Remediation Loan Program
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The Water Bond Act of 1999, Section 79133 of the Water Code, requires the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to adopt regulations in order to implement a new loan program for groundwater remediation projects. The proposed readoption of emergency regulations would continue the established loan criteria in order to provide loan funds of $7,000,000 (seven million dollars) to local agencies who may not otherwise be able to address local water contamination problems. DTSC has received several public inquiries regarding the development of the proposed regulations, and DTSC recognizes the need to provide timely access to this funding. DTSC is coordinating with the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) to assure that its regulations are consistent with the fiscal management and loan administration of the Clean Water Program. DTSC's Groundwater Remediation Loan Program ($7,000,000) is just a part of the larger Clean Water Act and the State Revolving Fund Loan Subaccount.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Title 14, Section 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
Readoption of these emergency regulations does not have the possibility of a significant effect to the environment because the standards proposed are common sense criteria that are designed to assure the success of selected projects, are tied to the intent of the legeslation and are not biased to any type of project. The individual loan recipient's activities will be subject to California Environmental Quality Act review on a project-by-project basis.
