Water Commission, California
(California Water Commission)
Water Storage Investment Program
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The California Water commission is required by Water code Section 79754 to adopt regulations regarding the quantification and management of public benefits and to subsequently rank water storage projects based on the expected return for public investment.
The Commission has determined that the adoption of these regulations is not a project under CEQA. The regulations only set up the process for quantifying public benefits associated with water storage projects and evaluating applications for potential receipt of public investment funds.
