Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301; CA Water Code 1729
Reasons for Exemption
The District has determined that there are no foreseeable environmental impacts, because both lands have been actively farmed, no new land has been developed, no additional groundwater will be pumped, and there is no physical change associated with this project. The single year transfer is also exempt from CEQA under Water Code S 1729. Further, the transfer is categorically exempt under CEQA since it involves the use and operation of an existing facility (CEQA Guidelines 15301).
