Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Common Sense [CCR Title 14, Sec. 15061(b)(3)]
Reasons for Exemption
DTSC has determined with certainty that there is no possibility that the activities in question may have a significant effect on the existing environment because the project would not result in "a substantial, or potentially substantial, adverse change in any of the physical conditions within the area affected by the project, including land, air, water, minerals, flora, fauna, ambient noise, and objects of historic or aesthetic significance.” The project is consistent with applicable state and local environmental permitting requirements including, but not limited to, meeting SCAQMD air quality standards and implementing dust control measures (identified in Rule 403), and meeting requirements governing volatile organic compounds and water quality standards that are approved by the regulatory body with jurisdiction over the site (City of Los Angeles). The excavation activities would occur in a previously disturbed area and is located centrally amongst existing industrial uses. The truck route will not have trucks traveling adjacent to residences except for nine residences located northwest of the intersection of East Imperial Highway and Watts Avenue. The limited timeframe for activities (approximately 5 to 7 weeks) will also not have the potential to substantially impact existing truck traffic in the project area.
