NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The project will remove an existing malfunctioning irrigation controller located inside a storage room within the California State Railroad Museum, and replace it with new controller that will be mounted on the exterior wall of the same building. Up to 9 irrigation valves will be connected to the new controller for automatic operation of sprinkler systems. Included in the project will be the installation of new underground wiring connecting the new controller with both existing and future irrigation valves. Installing the wiring will require 700 feet of trenching to a depth of 18 inches below ground surface. The width of the trenches will be 6 inches. Eight small shrubs (Viburnum japonica, a non-native species) will be removed to make way for the trenching work. The project supports continued use and grounds maintenance.
