Document Description
Categorical Exemption pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15304, Class 4, for fuel management activities within 30 feet of structures to reduce the volume of flammable vegetation, provided that the activities will not result in the taking of endangered, rare, or threatened plant or animal species or significant erosion and sedimentation of surface waters. Maintenance work along the pipeline consists of the following: (1) removal of soil and debris, and (2) brush clearance along the length of the pipeline. LADWP proposes to clear brush from all areas within 10 feet of either side of the pipeline to reduce potential fire damage, minimize corrosion, and allow for inspection as the pipeline is critical water infrastructure for the City of Los Angeles.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15304, Class 4
Reasons for Exemption
Class 4 consists of fuel management activities within 30 feet of structures to reduce the volume of flammable vegetation, provided that the activities will not result in the taking of endangered, rare, or threatened plant or animal species or significant erosion and sedimentation of surface waters. The Bouquet Reservoir Inlet/Outlet Pipeline is an existing utility pipeline constructed as part of the Los Angeles Aqueduct. Maintenance activities include vegetation clearance within 10 feet of the existing pipeline without expanding the use or capacity of the pipe. Therefore, no further review under CEQA is necessary.
