BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Basin Electric Power Cooperative says work has been done to improve emissions at its Leland Olds power plant in western North Dakota.

The Bismarck-based company says the $410 million project involved installing so-called scrubbers to clean up sulfur dioxide and other pollutants at the plant near Stanton.

Basin says the plant burns more than 3 million tons of lignite coal each year.

The company says emissions-control enhancements also should extend the operational life of the plant, which began making electricity in 1966.

Basin says most of the electricity produced at the plant is sent to South Dakota.
