Remediation of Former Manufactured Gas Plants (MGP) and Other Coal-Tar Sites
It is estimated that there are over 3,000 former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) sites across the United States. These sites were built on rivers or harbors, often on the outskirts of towns and cities; locations that are now frequently in close proximity to infrastructure, buildings and residential areas. Many of these sites are adjacent to valuable commercial, residential, and municipal properties, posing environmental hazards to ground and surface waters.
ACK Contracting has experience in MGP site remediation. This experience includes the installation and operation of ground water treatment systems (GWTS), sheet pile installation, soil excavation and site restoration.
