Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Type – Class 1; California Code of Regulations, title 14, section 15301
Reasons for Exemption
Class 1 addresses operation, maintenance, repair, or minor alteration of existing facilities or topographical features. The installation of the temporary ramp and berm provides access to an investor or publicly owned utility’s power lines and structures required to provide power to the public. The transfer of the lines to equipment that has been upgraded to meet current safety standards, and the removal of the existing structure, will improve safety, reduce risk of wildfires, and reduce the risk of power outages. The repair, maintenance, and alteration of the existing facility will not cause an expansion in service or use.
