Reasons for Exemption
The project is exempt as the contemplated activity is to reduce a portion of the existing facility to allow for reduced capacity. Less than 0.1 acres will be affected. As the project will reduce capacity of a facility which has not been used for the past 50+ years, the activity will have no foreseeable impact on the environment.
