Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Cal. Code Regs., tit 14, § 15302 ; Cal. Code Regs., tit 14, § 15303
Reasons for Exemption
Class 2 projects consist of replacement or reconstruction of existing structures and facilities where the new structure will be located on the same site as the structure replaced and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure replaced. This project will involve replacement of existing mechanical equipment at an existing food processing facility and the facility will have substantially the same purpose and capacity with the replacement equipment. The evaporator and distillation system consists of evaporators, condensers, distillation columns, heat exchangers, pumps, tanks, and associated wiring, piping, fittings, and fasteners. The demonstration will not have a significant impact on local air quality, noise, or traffic, and is expected to reduce local criteria pollutant emissions. 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. 15302. Class 3 consists of construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures; installation of small new equipment and facilities in small structures; and the conversion of existing small structures from one use to another where only minor modifications are made in the exterior of the structure. The project may require the construction of temporary or mobile structures during construction. These structures will not exceed 2,500 square feet. For these reasons, the project will not have a significant effect on the environment and falls under the categorical exemption listed in 14 CCR 15303. Each exemption is an independent basis for finding the project exempt.
