Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15269 (Emergency Projects)
Reasons for Exemption
The project involves the repair of existing drainage facilities in order to prevent further damage to public university facilities, which are considered essential to the public health, safety, and welfare of students at Cal Poly. Section 15269(c) of the State CEQA Guidelines exempts specific actions necessary to prevent or mitigate an emergency that may damage public facilities. The proposed repair is exempt because it was determined there is still significant potential for future stormwater flows through the channel to impact and damage public facilities during future heavy rain events.
