Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301, 15302, 15303
Reasons for Exemption
Board staff has determined the project is exempt from CEQA under the Class 1, Existing Facilities categorical exemption (CEQA Guidelines § 15301(b)) because the new backup generator and associated equipment will be installed at the existing facility used to provide electric power to the public. The project is also exempt under the Class 2, Replacement or Reconstruction categorical exemption (CEQA Guidelines § 15302 (c)) because the installation of the new standby generator and ancillary facilities will not expand the capacity of the existing facility. The project also is exempt under the Class 3, New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures categorical exemption (CEQA Guidelines § 15303(d) (e) because the removal of existing asphalt concrete, and the construction of a new concrete pad is a minor modification of the project area to support the construction of the new standby generator and fuel tank to serve the existing Pump House facility. Further, none of the exceptions to the exemption in CEQA Guidelines § 15300.2 apply.
