In 2017 TRC was awarded a $14.2 million contract to decommission one of the three generating units at Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s Scattergood Generating Station – while the other two units there remained in full service.

A complex project constrained by a tight footprint and short timeline, TRC’s dismantling of Unit 3 went off without a hitch. The LADWP’s project manager called it a “surgical removal” that saw work crews safely remove asbestos and lead paint, methodically take down the 330-foot stack and raze the 480 megawatt generator, control room and boiler.
