Cordelia Pumping Plant Vegetation Removal
NOE - Notice of Exemption
CCC Crews will remove vegetation from around the perimeter of the pumping plant and reservoir within the fence line. Loppers will be used to trim low hanging branches. Materials will be chipped and spread as mulch in the same area. Approximately 1.3 acres of land will be disturbed. Debris and silt will be removed from concrete v-ditch behind the plant and used to repack the eroded areas along the hillside within the structure. Additional work includes fence line repair and grounds clean-up. Access to site is directly off Mangels Blvd via the driveway to the plant. There will be no staging outside of the plant fence line parameters.
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.
