The AES Powerplant will be performing a "heat treatment" procedure this Saturday evening from Midnight to approximately 6 o'clock AM Sunday morning. This process involves the heating up of boilers in the facility; occasionally, temperatures can exceed set parameters and a pressure relief valve is activated which produces a very loud vapor extraction noise which may last approximately one (1) minute. For further information or concerns contact AES representative Cory Schilling at 310-318-7512.
