Anderson Park Village Consolidation Planning Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project includes abandonment/demolition of a small community public water system serving the Anderson Park Village apartment complex property, extension of City water service to the apartment complex, and improvements to the City's Volonte Well. The existing well on the apartment complex property was drilled in the mid-1960s and is deteriorating. There are no backflow prevention devices, resulting in the potential for contamination hazards due to cross connections. The existing well pump would be removed and the existing well would be abandoned; the vault would be backfilled and the area paved with asphalt to match existing grade. The existing hydropneumatics tank and appurtenant improvements would be removed, and the existing waterline between the well and the tank would be capped and abandoned in place. The apartment complex would be connected to the City's public water system by installing a new 2-inch water service and backflow prevention device on the apartment complex property. A new ±50-foot waterline would be installed from the apartment complex to the City's existing water main in Bruce Street. These improvements would ensure a safe and reliable water supply for residents in the apartment complex and comply with the Shasta County Environmental Health Department's recommendation to obtain an alternative water supply for the apartment complex.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1, §15301; Class 2, §15302; Class 4, §15304
Reasons for Exemption
Class 1 includes the repair, maintenance, or minor alteration of existing public structures, facilities, and mechanical equipment, involving negligible or no expansion of use; Class 2 includes replacement or reconstruction of existing utility systems and/or facilities involving negligible or no expansion of capacity; and Class 4 includes minor trenching and backfilling on land with a slope of less than ten percent where the surface is restored. The project is consistent with the categorical exemptions noted above because work would consist of repair, maintenance, and minor alterations to existing facilities; no expansion of capacity or use would occur: and the apartment complex improvements and Volonte Well improvements would be completed in previously disturbed areas, and the ground surface would be restored following construction. As documented in Attachment A, the proposed project would not have a significant effect on the environment due to unusual circumstances; would not result in damage to scenic resources within a Scenic Highway; is not located on a hazardous waste site pursuant to §65962.5 of the Government Code; would not cause a substantial adverse change in the significance of a historical resource; and would not result in cumulative impacts.
