Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Division 6, Chapter 3: Class 2, §15302; Class 3, §15303
Reasons for Exemption
The Class 2 exemption covers replacement or reconstruction of existing utility systems and/or facilities involving negligible or no expansion of capacity. The Class 3 exemption covers the construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures, including water main, sewage, electrical, gas, and other utility extensions, as well as street improvements, of reasonable length to serve such construction. The project is consistent with the categorical exemptions noted above because work would consist of replacement of the City’s existing water mains and installation of a limited number of new facilities including fire hydrants, standby generators, and fencing at existing water system facilities. The proposed project would not have a significant effect on the environment due to unusual circumstances; would not result in damage to scenic resources within a Scenic Highway; is not located on a hazardous waste site pursuant to §65962.5 of the Government Code; would not cause a substantial adverse change in the significance of a historical resource; and would not result in cumulative impacts.
