Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15308
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed regulations establish qualifications for unified program agencies to conduct corrective action at unified program facilities. These qualifications are designed to assure similar professional credentials and experience for UPA staff involved with corrective action. The proposed regulations do not affect DTSC's authority to require corrective action and do not change the number or type of sites that may require corrective action. The proposed regulations set qualifications for corrective action staffing by the unified program agencies that are based on DTSC's own personnel qualifications. Therefore, no foreseeable significant environmental effects will result from the content of the regulations. In addition, each corrective action project, whether conducted or required by DTSC or a qualified unified program agency, is subject to a project-level CEQA evaluation, as required by state law and specified in the proposed regulations.
