Reasons for Exemption
Proposal consists of installing an 8 inch water line 1.8 miles along Hwy 20 from Paradise Cove subdivision in Lucerne, CA to Harvey Blvd., Clearlake Oaks, CA as part of the consolidation of CSA-16 Paradise Valley and Clearlake Oaks County Water District, which is operating under an urgency ordinance adopting emergency water conservation. This project qualifies for a Statutory Exemption as an Emergency Project per Section 15269(a) of the CEQA guidelines due to the enactment of Emergency Proclamation No.1-17-2014 and associated continuances declaring a State of Emergency due to prolonged drought conditions. The Emergency project exemption is further supported by the fact that the proposed repairs are necessary to maintain water services essential to the public health (Section 15269(b)) and that repairs must be completed due to a high probability of worsening emergency conditions to an already impaired water system.
