Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
1729
Reasons for Exemption
The District has determined that there are no foreseeable environmental impacts since absent the exchange Tulare Lake Basin WSD would deliver its local supplies for use on District lands. The single year delivery/exchange is also exempt from CEQA under Water Code Section 1729. Further, the transfer is categorically exempt under CEQA since it involves the use and operation of an existing facility (CEQA Guidelines 15301).
