Central Plant

 
 
 

An expansion and renovation of the Central Plant completed in 2002 included installation of a larger, more environmentally-friendly boiler and replacement of the 100-foot-tall smokestack with smaller, more earthquake-safe smokestacks for each of the four boilers. A 35-year-old, 10,000-pound coal fire boiler—the smallest of four—was replaced by a 45,000-pound natural gas boiler.
