Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 3 15303 and 15061 (b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
Under 15303(d), water mains, sewage, electrical, gas, and other utility connections are exempt if not involving the use of significant amounts of hazardous substances where public services and facilities are available, and the surrounding area is not environmentally sensitive. The project would result in the installation of a new approximately 400 feet conveyance pipe within the Perris Boulevard right-of-way. The location would result in a storm water extension that would link the two catch basins on Perris Boulevard with the existing Metz Channel drainage infrastructure. This revision in flood drainage would allow full function of the Perris Valley Cemetery which currently is inundated with surface water and unusable. The operation of the new drainage extension would not result in the use of a significant amount of hazardous substances and would enhance provide public services at the facility.
