Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
S:15330, Class 30
Reasons for Exemption
1. The project is a minor action to be taken to prevent, minimize, stabilize, mitigate, or eliminate the release or threat of release of a hazardous waste or substance. 2. The project will not exceed $1 Million in cost. 3. The project does not involve the onsite use of a hazardous waste incinerator or thermal treatment unit or the relocation of residences or business, and does not involve the potential release into the air of volatile organic compounds as defined in Health and Safety Code Section 25123. 4. The exceptions under Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, §15300.2 are addressed as follows: Cumulative Impact. The project will not result in cumulative impacts because the soil vapor extraction system is already installed. Due to the subsurface geology at the Site, it was determined that the radius of influence of the existing pilot study is sufficient to remediate the Site. The final remedy would not lead to a succession of projects of the same type in the same place over time. Significant Effect. The environmental safeguards and monitoring procedures that are enforceable and made a condition of project approval will prevent unusual circumstances from occurring so that there is no possibility that the project will not damage scenic resources, because all activities occur underground, and are not located within a highway officially designated as a state scenic highway. Hazardous Waste Sites. The project will not be located on a site which is included on any list compiled pursuant to California Government Code §65962.5
