Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 2, Replacement and Reconstruction, CEQA Guidelines §15302
Reasons for Exemption
Board staff has determined that the project is exempt from CEQA under the Class 2, Replacement and Reconstruction categorical exemption (CEQA Guidelines §15302) because the activity consists of the removal and replacement of an existing irrigation pipe and electrical conduit with substantially the same purpose and capacity. In addition, this permit would facilitate 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 CEQA (Public Resources Code § 21065; CEQA Guidelines § 15378(a)).
