Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, § 15306
Reasons for Exemption
This project is exempt under Section 15306 because the project will only be collecting data related natural gas generation, transmission, distribution, and end use to inform recommendations on future natural gas related research. The project is exempt under the common sense exemption CCR 15061(b)(3) because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that gathering data related to natural gas use and producing related research recommendations may have a significant effect on the environment. Each exemption is an independent basis for finding the project exempt.
