Department of Education - Pump Replacement
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The proposed project will remove and replace (3) storm drain pumps, (2) sanitary sewer pumps and the electrical equipment controlling those pumps located in the utility building behind the theater. The pumps are 35 years old and need to be replaced to improve safety to current standards. The pumps have failed, resulting in the flooding of the theater building.
The exemption allows for the operation, repair, maintenance or minor alteration of existing public structures and facilities including restoration or rehabilitation of deteriorated or damaged structures, facilities, or mechanical equipment to meet current standards of public health and safety, that involve negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination. The State confirms that no exceptions apply which would preclude the use of an exemption for this project.
