In January 2021, Stanislaus County (County) adopted a Final Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for Aemetis Biogas LLC to construct approximately 32.5 miles of biogas pipeline located in unincorporated Stanislaus and Merced Counties. In August of 2021, the County issued an Addendum to the IS/MND to include improvements on 17 private dairies to connect to biogas collection facilities at each location. Since then, additional lateral pipeline extensions have been identified that will need to be constructed to service 21 additional private dairies in Stanislaus and Merced County.
