Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301, 15302
Reasons for Exemption
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. The advanced refrigeration system consists of compressors, condensers, evaporators, chillers, storage tanks, heat exchangers, piping and fittings, insulation, and associated control systems. Installing the new refrigeration system will include new concrete pads for the CO2 racks and new piping for the new CO2 refrigeration system. For these reasons, the project will not have a significant effect on the environment and falls under the categorical exemption listed in 14 C.C.R. 15301. 14 C.C.R. 15302. This project involves the replacement of existing mechanical equipment at an existing food processing facility in Yuba City, CA. This project will replace existing inefficient equipment at an existing food processing facility to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The equipment to be replaced includes compressors, condensers, evaporators, chillers, storage tanks, heat exchangers, piping and fittings, insulation, and associated control systems at the Recipient's food processing facility. The new equipment will be located on the same site as the equipment replaced and have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the equipment replaced. For these reasons, the project falls under categorical exemption listed in 14 C.C.R. 15302.
