Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1, Sec. 15301; Class 2, Sec.15302
Reasons for Exemption
The project is exempt under section 15301 because all public water systems in California were subject to cross-connection and backflow requirements prior to the adoption of the CCCPH and the CCCPH merely updates and replaces existing regulations, therefore compliance with the CCCPH will involve negligible or no expansion of existing or former public water system facilities. (See Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, § 15301.) Similarly, the project is exempt under section 15302 because compliance with the CCCPH will result in the replacement or reconstruction of existing public water system structures and facilities at the existing locations and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the replaced or reconstructed public water system structures and facilities. (See Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, § 15302.) For these reasons the CCCPH project will not have a significant effect on the environment and is categorically exempt from CEQA.
