NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is Lead Agency. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is the Responsible Agency and has reviewed the project for CEQA compliance. The BLM has drilled a new water well in their service area. BLM needs to replace an existing spring for source water due to unacceptable bacteriological contamination of the spring and is carrying out the project. CDPH has concluded the project qualifies for a Categorical Exemption and is exempt under CEQA. BLM will destroy the existing spring.
