Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Guidelines (CCR Section 15273(a) (1)-(4), “Rates, Tolls, Fares, and Charges”
Reasons for Exemption
Reasons to support exemption findings (attach additional material, if necessary): CSA 12 was formed pursuant to Resolution 84-72 by the Board on February 21,1984 in order to alleviate health and safety concerns related to poorly performing septic systems. Operationally, CSA 12 provides wastewater collection services and tracks septic system performance for residents in Mission Canyon. Operation and maintenance includes sewer system cleaning, video inspections, and capital repairs as needed. The proposed actions are for the establishment of rates for CSA 12 for the purposes of meeting operating and capital expenses, as well as for meeting financial reserve needs required to maintain services within the existing service area. Said rates are not for the expansion of the service system. Therefore, consistent with CEQA Guidelines section 15273(a) (1)-(4), the establishment of County Service Area 12 Charges and Fees for Fiscal Year 2024-2025 is exempt from CEQA.
