NOE - Notice of Exemption
DFD staff will remove all vegetation within specific areas at CCF and SFF; all areas along CCF maintenance roads, crown of the CC levee road to the crown of the adjacent road from seep 5 to radial gates, 20-foot swath from crown of CC levee into the field, field areas between Byron Highway and FF entry fence lines, three large fields on upstream and downstream of intakes on both sides of Byron Highway, fire break around the UC Davis Building, and field adjacent to the boat ramp closest to FF buildings. All areas are entirely within DWR right-of-way.
The State Water Project provides significant and important services to many Californians. This project is exempt because it involves routine maintenance activities. This project will not result in impacts to special status species or habitat. Because this activity can be implemented without any significant environmental impacts, the Categorical Exemption Class 1 will be used for CEQA compliance.
