Document Description
The project will fund the installation of 2 larger compressed natural gas (CNG) compressors will faster fueling capabilities at the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System's South Bay Bus Maintenance Facility. The new CNG compressors will replace the existing aged and undersized compressors at the facility, requiring minor trenching (3' deep x 20" wide x 100' long) on the facility property and replacement or modification of existing pipelines. The original concrete surface will be restored after the compressors are installed. The project benefits the San Diego urban area that is served by the Recipient's bus fleet and the public by reducing petroleum reliance, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and promoting the use of alternative fuels.

Reasons for Exemption
Categorical Exemption: 15301, 15303, 15304 The proposed project will take place at an existing bus maintenance facility with no or negligible expansion of use, will only require the conversion of the existing CNG fueling station to accommodate larger and faster compressors, and will require only minor trenching where the surface will be restored after work is complete. The project will replace existing pipelines to accommodate the new compressors. Therefore the project will not have a significant impact on the environment.
