Notes/Remedial Actions

*Same State Police number as an incident on 9/19/2008, but different NRC and LPEC numbers. Unsure if itÕs a separate incident or related. No LDEQ report.* Non-optimal shutdown performed prior to the Hurricane Gustav evacuation inorder to reduce emmisions during shutdown. There was insufficient time to perform 4-6 process to remove residual sulfur to As a result residual sulfur was released directly to the incinerator during startup.
