NOE - Notice of Exemption
The purpose and need for the Project is to armor channel embankments to ensure effective and safe movement of trains through Afton Canyon. The rip-rap is the minimum amount necessary to provide protection and will be un-grouted.
The Water Board finds that the Project is categorically exempt pursuant to CCR, title 14, section 15301, Existing Facilities, and section 15304, Minor Alterations to Land, for the minor alteration of an ephemeral stream for the purposes of protecting in-place an existing railroad structure.
