Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
The State CEQA Guidelines provide a series of categorical exemptions for projects that have been deemed to have minimal impacts on the environment. CE Class II exempts "replacement of existing utility systems and/or facilities involving negligible or no expansion of capacity," which is consistent with the proposed AMI Meter Replacement Project. The exceptions to the issuance of categorical exemptions have been evaluated for the proposed project activity. The proposed project was determined to be located at the same sites and have the same purpose and capacity as the structures replaced. Therefore, this proposed action is not forecast to cause any potential for significant adverse environmental impacts and qualifies with the CEQA requirements for Class II exemption.
