Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
S:15306
Reasons for Exemption
The project includes installation of thermal energy storage tanks within the loading dock areas of each project location and plumbing and refrigeration improvements interior to the buildings. The tanks will either be mounted on a skid that is permanently installed with structurally-anchored snubbers that prevent its movement or a concrete slab. The modified operation of equipment will include changing the on/off cycle of the site's medium-temperature refrigeration compressors and condensers. The improvements to existing facilities include minor alteration of existing structures, mechanical equipment, or topographical features, with negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's CEQA determination.
