Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
Categorical Exemption Section 15301. This District has determined 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 only the use and operation of existing facilities (CEQA Guidelines 15301) with no changes in land use.
