Beale AFB-POV Car Wash Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The project will include the construction of a three-bay car wash with recreation; vehicle (RV) wash bay, a covered two-bay vaccum island and an oil water seperator. A graded drainage swale will be constructed along the eastern limit of the project area. It will extend for 95 feet and will terminate into the existing drainage swale at the projects southern edge. Both the existing and newly constructed drainage swales, running adjacent to the project, will be lined with 135 linear feet of turf reinforcement matting to minimize erosion and downstream sedimentation.
The project meets the Categorical Exemption criteria under Title 14, Chapter 3, Article 19, Section 15303 of the California Code of Regulations, which exempts the construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures; installation of small new equipment and facilities in small structures; and the conversion of existing small structures from one use to another where only minor modifications are made in the exterior of the structure.
