The report gives results of a survey of the flue gas desulfurization (FGD) system at Commonwealth Edison's Will County Station boiler No. 1. The 146 MW (net) boiler was installed in 1955. In 1973 the boiler burned coal with a gross heating value of 9463 Btu/lb and ash and sulfur contents of 10 and 2.1 percent, respectively. The wet limestone FGD system was placed in service on February 23, 1972.
