The Lee County Expansion Project is a 636 ton per day Municipal Waste Combustor (MWC) in late stages of construction/startup, located in Ft. Myers, FL. The new unit complements the existing 1200 ton per day two-unit facility owned by the County and operated by Covanta Lee, Inc., which has been in service since 1994. The new unit is the first MWC permitted and constructed under the EPA’s New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) since they were promulgated in the 1990’s. This paper will describe the basic contractual arrangements, permitting, design and construction features, and overall costs for the expansion project.
