     The Powerlytix link problem is soon to be fixed. I've joined their listserve as its free and when I get access I can send data. Meanwhile this site from the EPA has similar data but only through 2004.The eGRID 2006  Version 2.1is in excel zip file format. You can access the link and then use the arrows to access the data for individual power companies. There are 4 files total covering all the emissions for American power companies. Frank this link should contain the info we need. The address is http://www.epa.gov/cleanenergy/egrid/index.htm

     I couldn't figure out how to navigate this site, to get to the information we need. Can you give us a clue? What do we click on? What buttons do we push?
     We need somehow to get comprehensive data on what is in the massive piles of stuff coal fired power plants are accumulating, much of which is water soluble. This is going to include fly ash percipitated, the ash and slag from the furnaces, and also the stack scrubbings, which will contain large amounts of contaminated gypsum and other sulfates as well as the nitrates and nitrites. As coal plants turn to higher temperatures and pressures to increase efficiency (supercritical plants, etc.), they presumably will also burn at higher temperatures, increasing nitrogen oxide formation. This stuff is perfect for creating eutrofication in surface waters and poisoning of groundwaters. It also is nasty stuff to breath if it's not scrubbed out.
     But then what? There's always a "then what".
     Hopefully we can get this data in the form of a report we can archive for everybody to access.

    Further relevant data on all US coal fired power plant stack emissions can be found at the Powerlytix site:http://www.powerlytix.com/frontend/wizard/ReportResult.shtml
    This resource has links to nitrogen oxiides emissions as well and also covers gas and nuclear plant data.    Bryce
