Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
§ 15301 Existing Facilities
Reasons for Exemption
Board staff has determined the project is exempt from CEQA under the Class 1, Existing Facilities categorical exemption (CEQA Guidelines § 15301) because the activity consists of permitting an existing bypass intake assembly that is tied into an existing pump station. This permit also includes a name change. An application to change the name of the permittee does not have the potential to result in either a direct physical change in the environment or a reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment, and thus, is not a “project” for purposes of the California Environmental Quality Act (Public Resources Code § 21065; CEQA Guidelines § 15378(a)). Further, none of the exceptions to the exemption in CEQA Guidelines § 15300.2 apply. Please note, the signed NOE is not attached. If you would like to request a signed copy of the NOE, please contact Board Staff at:
