Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Sec 15330, 15300
Reasons for Exemption
Minor cleanup action due to low volume of contaminated soil to be excavated, low level of work activity, and the relatively short timeframe needed to complete work activities. Small removal action because the costs fall well below the $1 million figure. Additionally, control measures in the RAW will ensure project impacts would be insignificant. These control measures include air monitoring during excavation, soil characterization for waste disposal purposes, transport of soil in a tarped truck by a registered hazardous waste hauler, decontamination of the truck prior to leaving the work area, and limiting the transport of contaminated soil on arterial streets and/or freeways to minimize potential impacts on the local neighborhood. No other resources will be impacted.
