Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code

Reasons for Exemption
Severe winter storms caused high tides and high winds, which severely eroded the levee that separates the Simpson Timber Company, Brainard Facility from the Bay. This situation leaves the levee highly vulnerable to breaching and tidal inundation.
