Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Article 19, Class 2 (Replacement or Reconstruction) , Section 15302.c
Reasons for Exemption
The Carmelita Avenue Emergency Watermain Replacement Project qualifies for exemption under CEQA because it constitutes a minor alteration to an existing utility system without significant expansion of use. The project specifically involves the replacement of an outdated and failure-prone 4-inch mix of steel pipe and asbestos cement pipe with a new, more reliable 8-inch Ductile Iron Pipe. This action is undertaken within the existing infrastructure footprint on Carmelita Ave, a small section of Arcadia Street and Coronita Street, and is designed to improve the reliability, water quality, and capacity of the City's potable water distribution system. The replacement falls squarely within routine maintenance and infrastructure upgrading activities, aimed not at expanding the water system's capacity but at ensuring its continued efficient operation and safety for the public. Furthermore, the project is not expected to have significant environmental impacts, as it utilizes the existing roadway and utility corridors, maintaining the current use and avoiding any significant alteration of the landscape.
