Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15307 and 15308
Reasons for Exemption
The agreement is an action by a regulatory agency to protect natural resources and the environment by managing and providing owners with preventative management education regarding nuisance wildlife and damage or threaten flood control facilities, agricultural levies, waterways, and soil stability. The program protects residents, crops, and livestock from predators and other nuisance wildlife, and protects forests, threatened and endangered species and wetlands. Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3);based on the record of Sutter County's continuous 32-year program with USDA Wildlife Services, and the assessments on this and similar programs throughout the Northern District (including Sutter County) and the resulting conclusions of the USDA Wildlife Services, US Department of Fish and Wildlife and California Department of Fish and Wildlife, it can be seen with certainty that continuation of the program, if carried out in a manner consistent with past practice and current standards as proposed, would not result in adverse impacts to the environment.
