Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
§15301 and §15302
Reasons for Exemption
Board staff has determined the project is exempt from CEQA under the Class 1, Existing Facilities, and Class 2, Replacement or Reconstruction categorical exemptions (CEQA Guidelines §15301 and §15302) because the activity consists of removal and replacement of an existing deteriorated 18-inch diameter irrigation pipe with a new 18-inch diameter irrigation pipe. The replacement pipe will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the existing irrigation supply pipe, and the project involves negligible expansion of an existing use. In addition, the proposed project would remove an existing 36-inch diameter standpipe (no replacement of this pipe, only removal). This permit also authorizes related existing encroachments including an access ramp, an existing overhead electrical crossing, an existing pump, and platform. Further, none of the exceptions to the exemption in CEQA Guidelines §15300.2 apply. Please note, the NOE is not attached. If you would like to request a signed copy of the NOE, please contact Board Staff at: questions@cvflood.ca.gov.
