Reasons for Exemption
Westlands Water District has determined that this project is categorically exempt from California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) because it continues ongoing operations of existing facilities within established parameters without substantial modification (Section 15301 of the CEQA Guidelines); and because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the water transfer may have a significant effect on the environment, the water transfer is not subject to CEQA (Section 15061(b)(3) of the CEQA Guidelines.
