Type, Section or Code
Sec. 21080(b)(4); 15269(b)(c)
Reasons for Exemption
Board staff has determined the project is statutorily exempt from CEQA under §15269(a) and §15269(b) covering emergency projects. The project included the removal and replacement of a failed discharge pipe and appurtenances that were damaged or destroyed in a flooding disaster, for which the Governor proclaimed a state of emergency in 2017.
Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
In addition, the project is exempt from CEQA under the Class 1 categorical exemption (CEQA Guidelines §15301) because the activity consisted of removal and replacement of an existing pipe and appurtenances associated with pumping water off the surrounding land. Further, none of the exceptions to the exemption in CEQA Guidelines §15300.2 apply.
