Reasons for Exemption
Class 2 exemptions include the replacement or reconstruction of existing facilities or structures including utility systems. Two large cottonwoods will be slightly trimmed (<10 ft) and 2-3 live oaks will be trimmed along the railroad tracks. Standard water pollution control specifications will address potential erosion and stormwater pollution. No permits are required for the project. Although Sulphur Creek is a sensitive resource, it will not be impacted by the project, nor will any other sensitive resources. There is no reasonable possibility that this project will have a significant effect on the environment.
