Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
The installation of a domestic water well is categorically exempt from CEQA under the Class 3 exemption, which applies to the construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures; installation of small new equipment and facilities in small structures. This project falls within the Class 3 exemption because approval of the project would result in the installation of one small well structure. Furthermore, none of the exceptions outlined in State CEQA Guidelines section 15300.2 apply here. The well will be located to avoid sensitive habitats. There will be no cumulative impact of successive projects of the same type in the same place, over time, because only one domestic well is necessary to serve any future proposed residential uses on the project site. There are no unusual circumstances such that the project will have a significant environmental impact. The well will avoid all scenic resources, including but not limited to, trees, historic buildings, rock outcroppings, or similar resources, and is not within a highway officially designated as a state scenic highway. The project is not located on a site included on any list compiled pursuant to Government Code section 65962.5. In addition, the project will not cause a substantial adverse change in the significance of a historical resource. Therefore, the project is categorically exempt from CEQA and no further environmental review is required.
