Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Public Resources Code Section 4799.05(d)(1)
Reasons for Exemption
CEQA does not apply to prescribed fire, thinning, or fuel reduction projects undertaken on federal lands to reduce the risk of high-severity wildfire that have been reviewed under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) if the primary role of a state or local agency is providing funding or staffing for those projects. WCB would provide funding for fuel reduction on 165.5 acres of federal land within the Inyo National Forest. The proposed activities were reviewed in their entirety under NEPA in the June Mountain Vegetation Management Project Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). The final Decision Notice for the EA/FONSI was signed by the Plumas National Forest on June 6, 2012. In 2020, the US Forest Service reviewed the EA/FONSI and certified that the NEPA analysis adequately addresses current site conditions and project impacts.
