Amargosa Culverts Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Amargosa River parallels State Route 127 and crosses the roadway at multiple culverted locations. The purpose of the Project is to replace existing deteriorated culverts at four locations in order to restore flow beneath the roadway, reduce the potential for overtopping and flooding, and improves public safety. Ungrouted rock slope protection will be added on the downstream side to dissipate flows.
The Water Board finds that the Project is categorically exempt pursuant to CCR, title 14, sections 15302, Replacement or Reconstruction, and section 15301, Existing Facilities, for the replacement and minor alteration to an existing structure in the same location and having substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure being replaced.
