The free-standing chimney at the old Concord Steam plant needs repairs as the state decides what to do after the plant’s de-commissioning concludes. Boston Chimney and Power inspected the tower and discovered some leaning caused by cracks in the 100-foot tower off of Pleasant Street, according to Mike Connor, deputy administrator with the state Department of Administrative Services. Because Sprint leased cell transmission equipment on the tower, they sent a crew Monday to take down their equipment so repairs can be made. The Sprint lease is up in 2020.
