The Covina-Valley Unified School District proposes to rehabilitate the existing swimming pool facility at Covina High School to meet current California Interscholastic Federation standards for competitive high school swimming, diving, and water polo.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 2, Class 4, and Class 14
Reasons for Exemption
The Class 2 Exemption applies because the Project involves the reconstruction of a swimming pool facility at an existing high school and the new pool facility will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the prior pool facility The Project would not increase the student enrollment capacity or number of classrooms at the school. Although the size of the new pool would increase to meet CIF regulations, the new facility would continue to serve the existing high school aquatics program and be available for community use, similar to existing conditions. Should the high school swim team qualify for state championship, additional meets may occur at the school, scheduled after the regular swim season. The increased use would be a negligible change from the existing operations of the facility. The Class 4 Exemption applies because while the Project involves ground-disturbing activities they will only occur in previously disturbed areas and all areas disturbed by construction of the Project would be restored with new pavement and structures to limit erosion and allow for continued school operations. The Project would not require the removal of any trees. The Class 14 exemption applies because the Project improvements to the pool facility do not expand the school site's original capacity by more than 25% or ten classrooms. The project improvements do not involve adding any classroom space so no impact is expected on enrollment or capacity. Additionally, none of the exceptions to these exemptions listed under CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2 apply to the Project.
