Document Description
The proposed project on the DelBiaggio Dairy will include the installation of concrete curbs around the perimeter of the existing concrete slab. The addition of the curbs to the slab will enable the dairy operator to contain manure on the existing slab, thereby decreasing the potential of rainwater runoff from becoming contaminated prior to exiting the concrete slab and entering into uncontainable areas during routine scraping operations. The proposed project also includes the installation of two pre-cast concrete sumps each equipped with new sump pumps. One of the concrete sumps will be strategically placed at grade and adjacent to the southeast side of the existing concrete slab to capture manure and contaminated rainwater runoff. The second concrete sump will be placed on the west side of the existing milking parlor and will capture milk-tank wash water. Both sumps will be equipped sump pumps that will convey the liquid waste to the existing waste storage facility.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Sections 15301 and 15303
Reasons for Exemption
(1) The proposed project will include the installation of concrete curbs around the perimeter of an existing concrete slab. The addition of the curbs to the slab will enable the dairy operator to contain manure on the existing slab. This is an addition to an existing structure, and this work clearly fits within the description of the Class 1 Categorical Exemption. (2) The proposed project includes the installation of two pre-cast concrete sumps each equipped with new sump pumps. Both sump pumps will convey the liquid waste to the existing waste storage facility. The proposed project will also include the installation of a backflow prevention measure to prevent direct discharge of liquefied manure through the existing irrigation water conveyance pipeline and into the existing well. This is an installation of small, new equipment and an improvement of the irrigation water conveyance system, and this work clearly fits within the description of the Class 3 Categorical Exemption. (3) The proposed project entails no exceptions to categorical exemptions.
