Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15261
Reasons for Exemption
CalGEM has determined that the project is statutorily exempt under the Ongoing Project (14 CCR 15261(b) exemption per the CEQA Guidelines because the UIC project proposed continued operation of an existing well that received approval prior to April 5, 1973. The UIC activities do not involve a greater degree of responsibility and control over the project as a whole than did approval of the existing well.

Exempt Status

15301
Reasons for Exemption
The project is categorically exempt from CEQA under the “Class 1” (14 CCR §15301) exemption per the CEQA Guidelines and CalGEM’s regulations (14 CCR §1684.1) because the project proposes continued operation of a single permitted well and does not include expansion of existing use.
