Document Description
The Santa Clarita Water Division Water Use Efficiency Strategic Plan was developed in 2012 and specifies ten water use efficiency programs that provide incentives to increase water efficiency in its service area within the Santa Clarita Valley. The programs include residential audits, low-flow showerhead distribution, ultra-high efficiency toilet distribution, turf removal, nozzle distribution and installation, weather-based irrigation controller installation, rebate programs and large landscape budgets. The plan will implement programs to help meet the mandate of a 20% reduction in water demand by 2020.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15061 (b)(3) 15262
Reasons for Exemption
The plan consists of water conservation programs including: high-efficiency toilet rebates, water use evaluations and equipment incentives for large landscape, commercial, industrial, and institutional sites, and a residential rebate program. The Plan qualifies for an exemption from CEQA under CEQA Guidelines Section 15262 as it involves only the feasibility and planning of future actions which the CLWA Board has not yet approved, adopted, or funded and does not require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report or Negative Declaration but does require consideration of environmental factors. Additionally, it can be seen with certainty that no significant effect on the environment will result from the Project; thus the Project also qualifies for an exemption from CEQA pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15061, subdivision (b)(3). None of the exemptions listed in Section 15300.2 of the State CEQA Guidelines would apply to the proposed action.
