The automatic measurement station of air pollution in the southern Bulgarian town of Dimitrovgrad measured Wednesday abnormal levels of sulphuric dioxide in the air.

The concentration of the poisonous gas was two times above the acceptable level.

The gas emissions came from the Maritza 3 thermal power plant and energy complex Maritza Iztok in the town.

After the worrisome measuring, the regional environment and waters inspectorate warned the operators on duty in the plant to immediately reduce the input power and to start using coals with less sulfur content.
