(57) Provided is a method of operating a flue gas desulfurization apparatus, in which gypsum slurry containing gypsum, which is obtained by bringing sulfur oxide contained in flue gas discharged from a combustion device including a boiler into contact with an absorbing solution composed of lime slurry in an absorption tower 1 and then subjecting the same to oxidation, is withdrawn from the absorption tower 1, and said gypsum slurry is supplied into a gypsum slurry tank 6 for supplying the gypsum slurry into dehydration equipment by using a pump 5 or is circulated to the absorption tower 1. In order to reduce the capacity of the pump 5 and thereby conserve pump power, the gypsum slurry is switched to being supplied into the gypsum slurry tank 6 or being circulated to the absorption tower 1 depending on the solid content concentration of the gypsum slurry withdrawn from the absorption tower 1.
