As part of the long range plan to increase the reliability of our 45 year old Power Plant, during early September, the Spring Creek Towers Power Plant will, for the first time in its nearly 50 year history, be shut down temporarily in order to replace and test critical equipment and perform important maintenance tasks that cannot be performed while the plant is operating.
During this time, we will have generators and boilers on site to ensure electricity and hot water are provided without interruption. Residents should not feel an impact during this shut down.
Taking the plant off-line requires extensive detailed planning to insure continuity of vital services, electricity, and hot water to the residents of the Spring Creek Towers community while this critical work is performed. Throughout the summer months, you will notice a great deal of activity outside the plant, while these temporary generators and boilers are installed. This short-term installation will deliver the power needed to keep the community’s lights bright and deliver other essential services to the residents.
While you may see a flurry of activity outside the plant, the bulk of the work will take place inside the Power Plant. Contractors will work around the clock, replacing equipment and performing critical maintenance tasks that cannot be accomplished while the plant is on-line and generating heat and power.
The Power Plant project will significantly increase the plant’s reliability, its longevity, and improve the quality of life for all Spring Creek Tower residents
