Remarks & Notes 
The NS 9331 leading the NS 68R delivers another load of Limestone to Belews Creek. Limestone is used in the plant WFGD or "scrubber" system and is injected into the flue gas to help reduce Sulfur Dioxide, the key ingredient in Acid Rain. The byproduct from this process is synthetic Gypsum, which is sold to produce wallboard or Sheetrock as it is better known. The Gypsum can be seen on the white pile in the back ground. It is loaded onto trucks and taken to a wallboard plant near Mount Holly, NC
