Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3) – Common Sense Exemption, CEQA Guidelines Section 15308 – Actions by Regulatory Agen
Reasons for Exemption
Lowering the major source threshold would only affect two facilities. Since these facilities’ actual emissions are much lower than the thresholds, they are anticipated to reduce their permit limits to stay below the thresholds and no physical facility modifications are necessary. Currently, state regulations require the use of a one pound per day threshold for major modification, therefore, lowering the federal major modification threshold to that same level would not have any impacts on facilities. Since the proposed project would not cause any physical changes that would adversely affect any environmental topic area, it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the proposed project may have a significant adverse effect on the environment.
