Butte County Fire Station 35 - SCBA filling station and emergency generator
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project will consist of constructing a 12'x14' shed to house a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) filling station. This shed will replace a smaller portable shed located in the same footprint. A concrete pad will be constructed for the shed and another 7' x 12' pad will be constructed for the stationary emergency generator. Trenches measuring 12" wide and 18" deep will be dug to bury electrical conduit from both pads. The trench from the SCBA filling station will be 30' long and the one from the generator pad will be 12' long. Both improvements are located adjacent to an apparatus bay that was constructed in the early 2000's.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15302, 15304
Reasons for Exemption
This project fits under portions of a Categorical Exemption to CEQA Class 2 - existing facilities and Class 4 - minor alterations to land. The SCBA shed and generator pad are replacing an existing portable shed with minor alterations to land with the trenching and new cement pad. The installation will cause minimal disturbance to a base rock fill installed during the facility replacement in the early 2000's. The project as proposed will have minimal impacts to humans or the environment. Field review by CAL FIRE staff confirmed that no exceptions apply that would preclude the use of a notice of exemption for this project. The Department has concluded that no significant environmental impact would occur to aesthetics, agriculture and forestland or timberland, air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, geology and soils, greenhouse gas emissions, hazards and hazardous materials, hydrology and water quality, land use planning, mineral resources, noise, population and housing, public services, recreation, transportation or traffic, or to utilities and service systems. Documentation of the environmental review completed by the Department is kept on file at the Butte Fire Center, 6640 Steiffer Road, Magalia, CA 95954.
