As part of our continuing commitment to keep you informed about the plant maintenance this past week, we want to let you know we completed the boiler maintenance successfully.
Once we confirmed that the particulate found in the plant parking lot on Wednesday was iron oxide (rust), and after cleaniing the ductwork again, we made a decision to use the scrubber stack in order to complete the work.
The boilers were fired beginning Friday about noon and the work was completed early Saturday morning. We kept a close eye on the scrubber stack and everything went well. There was no particulate emission from the stack. We appreciate your patience and will continue to communicate workthat is being done to operate the plant and carry out the ash spill recovery.
