"News & Issues" piece on Wyman Station at Cousins Island in Yarmouth, which is the state's dirtiest power plant. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says it can be cleaned up less expensively than advertised by the plant's owner, Florida Power & Light (FP & L), and to a much higher standard than the state believes is sufficient. And the air in southern Maine will stay dirty unless the state gets tougher, the agency says. Now the state's Board of Environmental Protection (BEP) has directed the company to clean the plant up. But FP & L maintains it might have to close the plant because it estimates the cost of meeting pollution standards at $50 million, which is prohibitive for a plant used only for peak periods.
