Reasons for Exemption
This project will install an advanced refrigeration system at a frozen food processing facility in Santa Rosa, CA. 14 C.C.R. § 15301. This project will involve minor alteration of existing facilities and mechanical equipment at an existing food processing facility and will result in no expansion of the existing use.

Site preparation may include a new concrete pad. The materials used to construct the system are chemically inert, not hazardous to human health, and do not have a significant effect on the environment. The systems purchased have safety certifications in compliance with relevant codes and standards. In addition, all required permits for installation and operation of the system will be obtained prior to system installation and demonstration.
