Temporary Climate Solutions
The city of Lakeland, Florida, needed to re-coat one of its three steam-generating systems, McIntosh Power Plant, Unit #1. The system had been constructed in 1969 and then recoated in 1977, on both occasions, a lead-based primer had been used. To comply with Environmental Protection Agency standards, city officials ran TCLP tests for 13 heavy metals. The finding showed that the plant’s coating exceeded EPA standards for lead. As a result, Lakeland was required to contain all particulate removed from the facility.
