Reasons for Exemption
This project is a small portion of the 2004 "Transfer Program," fro which to US Bureau of Reclamation has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment dated March 17, 2000 for the "2000 EA", and a Supplemental Environmental Assessment for the "2002 SEA." In the Finding of No Significant Impact approved on August 8, 2002, the Bureau of Reclamation determined that the proposed actions...would not have a significant effect on the environment. The project will use existing facilities within their existing capacities in a manner consistent with customary operations to provide water to long-time recipients of the DIstrict's water service for their use on land that historically has been used for agricultural purposes. The Project, conducted in conformity with the "Transfer Program," has no potential for causing a significant effect on the environment.
