Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1; Sec 15301 (Existing Facilities)
Reasons for Exemption
This exemption allows for the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing or minor alteration of existing public structures, facilities, or mechanical equipment to meet current standards of public health and safety that involve negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency’s determination. This project consists of upgrades and alterations to existing equipment and involves no expansion of use. This is one of a class of projects that the Secretary for Resources has found do not have a significant effect on the environment, and therefore is declared to be categorically exempt from the requirement for preparing an environmental document.
