The report describes progress made during the initial phase of a field evaluation program, conducted by EPA, to assess techniques for the disposal of power plant flue gas desulfurization (FGD) wastes. The site chosen for the evaluation was TVA's Shawnee Power Station, Paducah, Kentucky. Two 10-MW prototype flue gas scrubber systems--one using lime, the other limestone--produced wastes that were stored in five disposal ponds on the plant site. Two of the ponds contain untreated waste; each remaining pond contains waste chemically treated by one of three commercial contractors. Test samples of treated and untreated wastes, ground water, surface water, leachate, and soil cores are being analyzed in order to evaluate the environmental acceptability of current disposal technology. Based on this program, engineering estimates of total costs (capital and operating) for FGD waste treatment and disposal have been made.
