Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Statutory Exemptions - 15269 Emergency Projects: 15269(a) and 15269(b)
Reasons for Exemption
Statutory Exemption 15269 Emergency Projects: 15269(a); projects to maintain, repair, restore, demolish, or replace facilities in a disaster stricken area in which a state of emergency has been proclaimed by the Governor AND 15269(b); emergency repairs to publicly owned service facilities necessary to maintain service essential to the public health, safety or welfare. Emergency repairs include those that require a reasonable amount of planning to address an anticipated emergency. Lake County has been besieged by wild fires in the last 5 years. Lake County Special Districts is acquiring grant funding to improve function of the existing sewer line to be better able to provide essential services and reduce occurrences of sewer spills as a result of inflow and infiltration during wet weather. By doing so, they will also reduce environmental risks and hazards and improve health and public safety. The Lake County Community Development Department has determined that the project meets the criteria outlined in Article 18 for Statutory Exemptions of the CEQA Handbook and is, therefore, exempt from the requirements of CEQA.
