Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 2, §15302; Class 3, §15303; Class 4, §15304
Reasons for Exemption
The project is consistent with the categorical exemptions noted above because work would consist of the replacement of the existing well and distribution line, construction of new small structures, and minor alterations to the land. Only minor earth disturbance would be required to accommodate the proposed project, and the ground surface would be restored following construction. No mature trees would be removed, and no expansion of the District’s water system would occur. No wetlands or other waters are present on the project site. The proposed project would not have a significant effect on the environment due to unusual circumstances; would not result in damage to scenic resources within a scenic highway; is not located on a hazardous waste site pursuant to §65962.5 of the Government Code; would not cause a substantial adverse change in the significance of a historical resource; and would not result in cumulative impacts.
