Reasons for Exemption
The State CEQA Guidelines provide a series of categorical exemptions for projects that have been deemed to have minimal impacts on the environment. The proposed project consists of installing a new Evaporative Cooling System to deliver cool air to the adjacent Aeration System facilities. This proposed project has been determined to have no potential to cause significant adverse effects on the environment and will ensure that future operations at RP-1 can be conducted without significant adverse impact. Categorical Exemption Class 3 exempts “construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures.... (d) Water main, sewage, electrical, gas, and other utility extensions, including street improvements, of reasonable length to serve such construction and (e) Accessory (appurtenant) structures including garages, carports, patios, swimming pools, and fences.” The exceptions to the issuance of a Class 3 categorical exemption have been evaluated for the proposed project. The proposed project has been determined not to have a potential to cause significant adverse environmental effects as a result of any of the exceptions. Therefore, this proposed action is not forecast to cause any potential for significant adverse environmental impacts and qualifies with the requirements for Class 3 Exemption.
