Title: Chalk Point Cooling Tower Project. Volume 1. Phase IV, comprehensive field program description. Environmental Systems Corporation's comprehensive project final report, October 1, 1975--June 30, 1976. [Fossil-fuel power plant]

Abstract

Results of a field measurement program conducted as part of the Chalk Point fossil-fuel power plant cooling tower project for the fiscal year 1976 are presented in two volumes. Source measurements of droplet size and mineral mass emission were conducted in the Unit 3 natural draft cooling tower and scrubber stack together with downwind measurements of a number of parameters including droplet size during two Intensive Monitoring Periods (Seasonal Tests). In addition, results are presented of continuous monitoring measurements wherein downwind sodium concentration, cooling tower droplet size measurements and time-lapse plume photography were acquired. On-site meteorological data was also acquired over the report period and is presented in summary form. A portion of the first seasonal test data was used as input to drift transport models as a first step in model verification and determination of stack drift interference with measurements aimed at determining downwind cooling tower contributions.
