Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
The Project is statutorily exempt from CEQA pursuant to the Statutory Exemption for Restoration Projects (SERP), Public Resources Code section 21080.56, as a project that meets all of the following conditions: (1) the Project is exclusively to conserve, restore, protect, or enhance, and assist in the recovery of California native fish and wildlife, and the habitat upon which they depend; or is exclusively to restore or provide habitat for California native fish and wildlife; (2) the Project may have public benefits incidental to the Project's fundamental purpose; (3) the Project will result in long-term net benefits to climate resiliency, biodiversity, and sensitive species recovery; and includes procedures and ongoing management for the protection of the environment; and (4) Project construction activities are solely related to habitat restoration. WCB's independent determination of exemption is based on the Project as described in the Lead Agency Determination and request for concurrence submitted to CDFW by the California Regional Water Quality Control Board, Lahontan Region on July 7, 2022. CDFW determined that the Project meets the qualifying criteria for a SERP exemption and issued a Concurrence on July 18, 2022. There have been no subsequent changes to the Project or changes in condition that could affect the Lead Agency Determination, therefore the CDFW Concurrence issued on July 18, 2022 remains in effect and no separate concurrence from CDFW is required. Records of concurrence are archived in the CDFW Environmental Permit Information Management System (EPIMS) Document Repository.
