An experimental investigation was conducted to measure the sulfur dioxide washout by natural precipitation from the plume of a large, coal-fired plant. The field investigation extended over three one-month periods in the vicinity of the Keystone Generation Station where 11 to 23 tons of sulfur dioxide, depending on power output, were released hourly from two 800 feet stacks. The primary objective of the study was to assess the effectiveness of precipitation washout as a mechanism for removing sulfur compounds from the plume of the keystone plant. A secondary objective of the study was to evaluate the relative importance of various interractions and atmospheric variables.
