Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code

Reasons for Exemption
This project fits within Cal. Code Regs. tit. 14, sect. 15301 because it involves minor alteration and installation of equipment at an existing facility, with no expansion of capacity. This installation is at an existing, developed site on land that is not environmentally sensitive. No historical resources or buildings will be affected. Noise and odors will not be generated by these installations in excess of existing permitted amounts. The installation will not increase traffic to these sites and will not require permits for air, water, conditional use, building expansion, hazardous waste, or rezoning. Additionally, Cal. Code Regs. tit. 14, sect. 15306 applies because this project also involves basic data collection, research, experimental management, and resource evaluation activities which do not result in serious or major disturbance to an environmental resource.
