Document Description
The Dairy Facility located on Renner Lane, Ferndale CA 95536 (APN 106-091-008) is proposing to implement an agricultural enhancement project with funding granted by the Humboldt County Resource Conservation District (HCRCD) Dairy Grant Program. The HCRCD Dairy Grant Program is funded by the State Water Resources Board (SWRCB) through Proposition 50 and provides cost share assistance for the implementation of projects located on Humboldt County Dairies. Projects funded under the Dairy Grant Program are intended to protect surrounding water resources while improving dairy management operations. The proposed project described herein received a priority ranking in April, 2008 by the HCRCD Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and funding has been allocated by the HCRCD and the SWRCB. This proposed project will integrate into the manure collection, storage, and distribution system at the dairy facility. The implementation of the slab will benefit the overall dairy management and improve the waste management efficiency of the dairy. This practice is important in nutrient management and protecting adjacent water resources and is a recommended practice by USDA-NRCS. The reinforced concrete slab will be designed in accordance to the USDA-NRCS Standards and Specifications and is proposed for implementation (construction) during the summer of 2008.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 3(15303),Class 4(15304)
Reasons for Exemption
1)The proposed project includes construction of a 12 ft x 235 ft curbed concrete slab on the west side of the existing hay barn facility. The proposed project will integrate into the manure collection, storage, and distribution system at the dairy facility. The slab is an accessory structure to the existing dairy facility, and this work clearly fits within the description of the Class 3 (15303) Categorical Exemption. 2)Construction of the slab will require minor site preparation in the form of grading to achieve the desired slab grades. This is relatively minor grading on land with a slope less than 10 percent, and this work clearly fits within the description of the Class 4 (15304) Categorical Exemption. 3)The proposed project entails no exceptions to categorical exemptions.
