Reasons for Exemption
Westlands Water District has determined that this project is exempt from the CEQA as provided in Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations, Section 15261 and 15300.2 because the action continues ongoing conveyance funded and fully operational prior to November 23, 1970, storage, receipt and delivery of water supplies developed in previous compliance with and/or found to be exempt from the CEQA will continue, and it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the proposed actions in question may have a significant effect on the environment; with no expansion of service and no new facilities constructed because the District will deliver the water received under Temporary Water Service Contract for Section 215 to lands within the District's boundaries for beneficial use on eligible land already in production and through existing facilities.
Execution of the Contract is categorically exempt from compliance with the CEQA as provided in Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations, Section 15300 through 15333, with reference to Sections 15301 and 15304, because it merely provides for continued operation of existing facilities, will involve only minor alterations to land already developed and maintained for agricultural purposes.
