CEQA requires analysis of agency approvals of discretionary "projects." A "project", under CEQA, is defined as "the whole of an action, which has a potential for resulting in either a direct physical change in the environment or a reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment" (State CEQA Guidelines Section 15378). State CEQA Guidelines Section 15061 (b)(3) describes the General Rule that CEQA only applies to project which "have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment" and that "where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity may have a significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to CEQA."
