15 May Update: SWB’s Turbine 4

SWB T4 (turbine 4) was supposed to start up again, or at least be installed, on 9 May. SWB has been testing it since then, perhaps delayed a bit by the troubles that caused our most recent boil-water advisory, I don’t know. They said Thursday that testing would continue through the weekend if necessary. The public has been told that the noise will be greatly reduced when it comes online.

Today, 15 May, we were told by Ghassan: “they are still relying on T1 and that ‘T4 tripped offline twice yesterday’.” He hopes that there is no need for the EMDs (diesel generators).
