Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1, Existing Facility (sec. 15301) & Class 2, Replacement or Reconstruction (sec. 15302)
Reasons for Exemption
As presented in the project description, NGWC seeks to remedy imminent health dangers to 117 existing customers posed by a failing commercial water conveyance system. Through a series of repairs, replacements and new infrastructure, the company intends to retain the current footprint, aside from minimal disturbance and consequential vegetation removal to accommodate new concrete foundations and small structures. No additional water services are proposed and twelve existing connections will be reconnected upon completion of the project. Details of the inspection conducted by the California Department of Water Resources Control Board, Division of Drinking Water on May 17, 2018 indicated that the entire water conveyance system had deteriorated to such an extent, NGWC did not meet current standards of public health and safety. Staff finds that as proposed, CDP_2020-0029 meets the requirements for a categorical exemption pursuant to 14 CCR §15301 in that the request primarily seeks to elevate current potable water and fire protection capacity of existing customers through a robust and multifaceted upgrade.
