Reasons for Exemption
Minor Alterations to Land This project will be categorically exempt from CEQA as a Minor Alteration due to the fact that only brush or small trees will be removed and ground disturbance will be minimal. Masticated material and ground cover will remain to reduce exposed soil. Cut brush will retain its root structure and re-sprout to reduce erosion. There are no SEZ issues associated with this project. An archaeological survey was conducted on the site, resulting in no found significant sites. A Lahontan (LRWQCB) waiver has been submitted.
