Metropolitan Water District of Southern California
Annual Maintenance and Repair
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) proposes to shutdown the Etiwanda Power Plant in order to perform annual maintenance and testing. Activities to be performed include maintenance and testing of the hydrogenerator; maintenance and testing of electrical equipment; electrical testing, inspection, and cleaning in the high voltage switchyard on circuit breakers, disconnect switches, and transformers; and checking the condition of carbon seals and bearings. As part of the project, Metropolitan also proposes to repair existing valves and hydraulic systems at the plant.
The proposed project consists of the operation, repair, maintenance, or minor alteration of existing public stuctures, facilities, or mechanical equipment involving no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination. The proposed project also consists of the replacement or reconstruction of existing structures and facilities where the new structure will be located on the same site as the structure replaced and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure replaced. The proposed project also consists of activities limited to inspections, to check for performance of an operation, or quality, health, or safety of a project, including related activities such as inspection for possible mislabeling, misrepresentation, or adulteration of projects.
