California Institute for Men, Water Line Replacement

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
CDCR is proposing to replace approximately 3600 Linear Feet (LF) of water line at the California Institution for Men (CIM) in Chino CA. The project involves replacing approximately 3600 LF of 6" diameter C-900 water pipe. Trench depth to top of pipe is a minimum of 3 feet below top of subgrade. There are 3 points of connection. The end connection is at the waste water treatment plant that serves CIM. The second connection is a 2.5" fire hose connection at an onsite Piggery and the third connection is a 2.5" hose connection at a grit chamber. The pipeline is located within a highly disturbed area in close proximity to a dirt access road and above head powerlines. Based on recent site visits there are no sensitive resources within the project area. This project is needed to improve existing infrastructure and ensure unimpeded operations of the institution.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
S: 15301
Reasons for Exemption
The projects consist of minor alteration to existing facilities in a developed, disturbed area, where there are no sensitive resources, and involves negligible or no expansion of use. The project site is not in an environmentally sensitive area and none of the exceptions to this exemption are applicable. This is one of a class of projects that the Secretary for Resources has found do not have a significant effect on the environment, and therefore is declared to be categorically exempt from the requirement for preparing an environmental document. None of the exceptions to a notice of exemption apply.
