CPS Units and FTC Units are a form of catch basin protection that is effective in capturing trash and debris larger than 5mm in size.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Guidelines, Section 15301, Class 1
Reasons for Exemption
The project is categorically exempt under CEQA Guidelines Section 15301, Existing Facilities. This exemption applies to the operation, repair, maintenance, and minor alteration to existing public or private structures or facilities (including existing highways, streets, sidewalks, gutters, trails, and similar facilities), involving negligible or no expansion of the existing use. The proposed project is exempt because it involves installation of storm water treatment features to the existing storm drain system and does not increase system capacity or otherwise expand the existing use. The project does not cause significant environmental impacts or trigger any of the “exceptions to exemptions” contained in CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2.
