New chimney will reduce pollution
(2008-03-20)
(WOUB) - Construction is complete on a new
chimney that will reduce pollution at Allegheny Energy's coal-fired electric power plant on the Ohio River at Willow Island, West Virginia.

The new 640-foot chimney is part of a 105 million-dollar environmental upgrade at Pleasants Power Station.

Allegheny says scrubbers in the chimney will reduce sulfur dioxide emissions by more than 30,000 tons a year.
