The project will include releathering all windchests and reservoirs as well as cleaning of chambers. Pipework will be removed to the Marceau shop for cleaning, repairs, and regulation. A new electrical system will be provided by the Syndyne Corporation of Vancouver, Washington. All cotton-covered cables will be replaced with PVC telephone cable to meet code requirements.
