Document Description
The proposed project would involve replacement of an existing evaporative condenser (EC) by Harvest Meat Company (Tenant) in the City of National City, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve use of a crane to remove the existing EC from the Tenant building rooftop and to lift the new EC into place. The new EC would be approximately 20,710 pounds, approximately 5,569 pounds lighter than the previous EC and would be connected to existing utility connections and anchored to an existing equipment platform approximately six (6)-inches above the finished surface of the roof. Construction of the project is anticipated to commence in Winter 2021 and would take approximately one (1) week to complete. Due to its nature and limited scope, construction of the proposed project would generate a minor amount of vehicle trips and would require limited use of equipment. Therefore, significant impacts related to air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, and transportation and traffic are not anticipated to occur. Furthermore, the Tenant would be responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding construction demolition debris, hazards and hazardous materials, and stormwater.
