Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
15306 provides that projects which consist of basic data collection, research and resource evaluation activities which do not result in a serious or major disturbance to an environmental resource are categorically exempt from the provisions of CEQA. Specifically, this project involves the use of small handheld monitoring equipment to measure methane emissions occurring within commercial buildings. All measurements will occur inside of existing buildings and the monitoring equipment used to measure the emissions will not be installed in the buildings. Therefore, the project falls within Section 15306 and will not have a significant effect on the environment.
