Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
S: 15302(c), 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The Project is also exempt from further environmental review under CEQA because City of Colusa Planning staff has concluded with certainty that the Project would have no significant effect on the environment, pursuant to Guidelines Section 15061 (b) (3), because development of infrastructure within the Project site is subject to: All standard best management practices (BMPs); Approval of storm water pollution prevention plans; Construction hours & noise limitations; and Air-quality control plans The above prevention measures, plans and regulations will ensure avoidance of any environmental impacts. Additionally the Project is categorically exempt from environmental review, pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15302 (c), because new utility infrastructure will be replaced on the same site as the infrastructure replaced, will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the infrastructure replaced, with negligible expansion of capacity.
