Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
21084 & 15303(d)
Reasons for Exemption
The State CEQA Guidelines provide a series of categorical exemptions for projects that have been deemed to have minimal impacts on the environment. The proposed installation of the recycled water distribution system and booster pump station and delivery of recycled water to institutional and recreational landscaped areas have been determined to have no potential to cause significant adverse effects on the environment and will ensure that the water resource management by the City can continue to operate in an efficient and safe manner. Categorical Exemption Class 3 exempts "construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures: (d) water main, sewage, electrical, gas, and other utility extensions, including street improvements of reasonable length to serve such construction." The exceptions to the issuance of categorical exemptions have been evaluated for the proposed recycled water distribution system alignment. The proposed recycled water distribution system has been determined not to have a potential to cause significant adverse environmental effects as a result of any of the exceptions. Therefore, this proposed action is not forecast to cause any potential for significant adverse environmental impacts and qualifies with the requirements for a Class 3 Exemption.
