Document Description
Project Garden consists of the development of an approximately 208,000 square foot concrete building for food processing, office use, and a refrigerated warehouse. The project's use involves the washing, cutting, mixing and blending of fresh vegetables, and ancillary preparation of carbohydrate products such as rice and pasta to be added to salad dishes. To support the proposed food processing operations, the project would include the construction of an anhydrous ammonia refrigeration system, two evaporative coolers, water storage tank, buffer tank, dilution tank, a 2,640 gallon liquid oxygen tank, a 2,640 gallon carbon dioxide tank, a 4,000 gallon nitrogen tank, and a wastewater treatment unit. The anhydrous ammonia refrigeration system would store 5,000 lbs of ammonia solution and would be compliant with the latest standards set forth by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers and Uniform Fire Code Article 80. There would be two diesel emergency generators installed on-site. The larger generator (Generator #1) has a power rating of 2,323 brake horsepower (BHP) or 1,732 kW and Generator #2 is 1,120 BHP or 835 kW. Each generator would be operated up to one hour per week for testing purposes, and the testing would not occur on the same day. In addition, the diesel generators would require the installation of a 2,000-gallon underground storage tank for the storage of diesel fuel. The facility would incorporate 15 dock doors for shipping and receiving produce. The maximum number of inbound and outbound trucks would be approximately 80 per day (40 trucks). The proposed food processing facility would employ 350 individuals in two shifts, with 200 persons in the day shift and 150 persons in the night shift. Jobs range from human resources, information technology, finance, drivers, new product development, machine operators, technical engineers, line leaders, and semi skilled and skilled processing employees.
