Golf Course Recycled Water Concrete Pad Repair Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Project consists of the repair and stabilization of an existing at-risk concrete pad damaged from winter storms and onsite rodents. The 6-inch concrete pad supports several pipeline and valve appurtenances critical to the operation of the City’s recycled water Golf Course reservoir and pump station. The concrete pad was temporarily backfilled and repaired after storms in January 2023 and requires a long-term repair to prevent additional damage to the existing pad and pipelines.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301 (b) and (d), and 15304 (f)
Reasons for Exemption
CEQA Guidelines Section 15301 (b) and (d), Existing Facilities. This Project meets Section 15301 Existing Facilities Class 1 (b) and (d) categorical exemption, because the repair of the existing Recycled Water facility’s concreate pad is necessary to prevent additional damage of the concrete pad, pipelines, and valves to continue the operation of the City’s recycled water Golf Course reservoir and pump station. CEQA Guideline Section 15304 (f) Minor Alterations to Land. This Project meets the Section 15304 Minor Alterations to Land Class 4 (f) categorical exemption, because the minor trenching and backfilling where the surface is restored does not involve the removal of any trees. Archaeology. Although a portion of the parcel has been identified as the Prehistoric Watercourse Buffer, it is the opposite end of the parcel from which the minor work is proposed. Given that there has been prior landform modification to the same depth in the proposed area of disturbance, the potential effect is considered to be less than significant. Noise. The minor construction related noise impacts are considered to be less than significant as the only sensitive noise receptor is over 1,000 feet away at the opposite end of the golf course. In conclusion, the Project stabilizes the Golf Course Recycled Water Pump Station valve concrete pad to prevent additional damage and movement. Project is not anticipated to result in any significant impacts towards the environmental resources, therefore, the Public Works Department recommends that the Case Planner consider this Project as exempt, as defined in the CEQA review process classified under the §15301 (b) and (d) Existing Facilities and §15304 (f) Minor Alterations to Land categorical exemptions of the CEQA Guidelines.
