Salt Creek Slough Poles Replacement/Relocation Phase II (R-Line); No. 200253
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project consists of the relocation across the north side of the roadway of a line segment of the existing 92kV transmission line with underbuilt distribution in the Worthington Road and Salt Creek Slough area and the installation of a temporary distribution line (shoe-fly) to bypass the construction relocation area. The transmission line segment that follows the same alignment as the Worthington Road double curve turn south of Erskine Road is supported on tangent and guyed wood pole structures. The transmission guyed wood pole structures have been compromised due to the river bank erosion which led to the loss of foundation around the transmission infrastructure and the relocation of this segment will alleviate the potential deficient pole placement. The section of the guyed wood pole structures section of the transmission line will be converted to self-supported steel lattice mast-type structures with foundations.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Sec. 15302 (Class 2); Sec. 15303 (Class 3)
Reasons for Exemption
the project is exempt under Section 15302 because the work comprises the replacement or reconstruction of existing structures and facilities where the new structure will be located on the same site as the structure replaced and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure replaced, as is the case of the replacement or reconstruction of existing utility systems; as well as under Section 15303 given that it involves the construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures; installation of small new equipment and facilities in small structures; and the conversion of existing small structures from one use to another where only minor modifications are made in the exterior of the structure like electrical utility extensions of reasonable length.
