Notice of Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301, class 1
Reasons for Exemption
The project involves maintenance, repair, and replacement of existing infrastructure and facilities. Pursuant to CEQA Guidelines sections 15300 and 15301, the Secretary of Resources has found that projects consisting of the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features, involving negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination do not have a significant effect on the environment and are therefore exempt from the requirement for the preparation of environmental documents.
