Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Sec. 15304 (g)
Reasons for Exemption
Maintenance dredging is categorically exempt and all required state and federal regulatory agency permits will be obtained before dredging commences. Furthermore, the project, including the sediment deposition sites, is consistent with the Programmatic EIR/EIS prepared for the Long Term Management Strategy (LTMS) for Placement of Dredged Material in the San Francisco Bay and the 1998 and 2015 Biological Opinions for the LTMS which specifically identify dredging of the Petaluma Marina Petaluma River Turning Basin. There are no cumulative impacts, unusual circumstances or other factors that would make the exemption inapplicable. Therefore, this project is exempt under Section 15304 (g), “maintenance dredging where the spoil is deposited in a spoil area authorized by all applicable state and federal regulatory agencies.”
