Work should be completed this summer
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is dismantling Power Units 3-6 at the Haynes plant near Leisure World, with work expected to be completed in the summer of 2021.
These natural gas powered units are no longer in service. Removing them will help LADWP create more sustainable options as it works toward a clean energy future.
The following work will be conducted Monday-Friday from 7 a.m.-6 p.m. (with project completion by Jan. 31):
• Power Units 5 and 6: The stacks of Units 5 and 6 will be cut into pieces, lifted and carefully lowered to the ground for removal. The work will require the use of torches, excavators and a crane.
• Power Units 3 and 4: Metal framing will begin dismantling.
• Environmental Monitoring: Monitoring instruments will measure dust, noise and vibration levels during work to maintain levels below the required limits.
• Traffic: There will be only a few trucks entering and leaving the plant during daytime hours.
No traffic impacts are expected.
