Richvale Irrigation District deliveries irrigation water to the above specified parcels annually, although it was recently determined that said parcels are located outside of the present District service area boundary. Some parcels have been served since ~1939. The water used for such deliveries since 1969 has come from the District's annual allocation under the Agreement on Diversion of Water from the Feather River by and between the Department of Water Resources and Joint Water Districts, which Agreement requires written DWR approval for delivers of water subject to the Agreement outside of the District's Service Area as specified.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Sec. 15261,15301
Reasons for Exemption
Ongoing Project (15 CCR Sec. 15261) - Deliveries to some affected parcels have been ongoing annually since ~1939, and deliveries subject to the Agreement since 1969. Continuing operation of existing facility (14 CCR Sec. 15301) - Because some deliveries have been ongoing annually since ~1939, and in all cases since 1969 under the Agreement, continuing said deliveries via the Richvale Canal constitutes continued operation of an existing facility.
