Reasons for Exemption
This transfer involves project water within MWA and DRWD's Water Supply Contracts with DWR; all deliveries occur entirely within the SWP place of use and exclusively utilize existing facilities. CEQA Section 15301(b) provides that a lead agency may determine an activity to be exempt from CEQA in that it utilizes only existing facilities. The program involves project water within MWA and DRWD's Water Supply Contracts with DWR, all deliveries occur entirely within the SWP place of use and exclusively utilize existing facilities. This program is also consistent with DRWD's Negative Declaration (#SCH2016021110) for DRWD's 2015 update to 2012 Agricultural water management plan, which describes projects like this as being part of DRWD's routine water management strategy.
