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 is the Central Plant Cooling Tower Replacement, Project EN23003. IEUA has determined this proposed project has no potential to cause significant adverse effects on the environment and will ensure that future operations at the Agency’s Headquarters and Laboratory can be conducted without significant adverse impact. Categorical Exemption Class 2 exempts “replacement or reconstruction of existing structures or facilities where the new structure will be located on the same site as the structure replaced and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure replaced, including but not limited to: “ “(b) Replacement or reconstruction of existing utility systems and/or facilities involving negligible or no expansion of capacity.” The proposed project has been determined not to have a potential to cause significant adverse environmental effects by the Agency.
