Document Description
The City of Mendota Stormwater Improvement Project (Project) includes Low Impact Development (LID) and conventional storm drainage infrastructure to mitigate severe flooding along Naples Street that is a significant risk to public safety and property. The Project includes construction of approximately 1,030 linear feet of storm drain pipe and inlets along two blocks of Naples Street, between 8th and 10th Streets and approximately one-acre of street reconstruction. Flows within the project area will be routed through 21 LID "tree sponges" that will capture storm water for treatment and infiltration. The majority of runoff captured along Naples Street will be routed to a new 2.13-acre extended dry detention basin. Excess runoff volumes from the basin will be discharged via a lift station to the existing drainage course. The Project also includes utility relocations, new power supply, new landscaping, and pedestrian facilities.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15302 and Section 15304
Reasons for Exemption
The Project is exempt from CEQA pursuant to Section 15302 of the CEQA Guidelines, because the Project proposes to replace the existing undersized and/or destroyed storm drain pipe system in essentially the same alignment. The proposed basin will be replacing the ad-hoc existing detention on currently undeveloped land at 1073 Naples Street. The new landscaping constitutes a minor alteration in the condition of the land and does not involve the removal of healthy, mature, or scenic trees.
