Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15262: Feasibility and Planning Studies
Reasons for Exemption
The project is Statutorily Exempt under Section 15262, Feasibility and Planning Studies, of the CEQA Guidelines. This project involves only the planning studies for possible future actions which the Sierra Nevada Conservancy Board has not approved, adopted, or funded. The planning project does not require the preparation of a Negative Declaration or Environmental Improvement Report but does require consideration of environmental factors. The project is also categorically exempt under CEQA Section 15306, Information Collection (Class 6), because it consists of basic data collection, research, experimental management, and resource evaluation activities which do not result in a serious or major disturbance to an environmental resource. The proposed activities are for information gathering purposes, or as part of a study leading to an action which a public agency has not yet approved, adopted, or funded.
