Former MGP ISS Remediation Project – New Jersey
Gary Rose, MGP Program Manager, Sevenson Environmental Services, Inc.
The MGP site encompasses 32 acres and is bounded on the east by a roadway; the west by an Amtrak and PATH rail line; the south by the Passaic River; and the north by property owned by PATH. The MGP plant was constructed and operated as a base load plant until 1963 when it was converted to a peak shaving status facility until retired from service in 1987 and in 1992 it was decommissioned. Buildings and structures were removed to grade, but the MGP foundations, pipes, and other remnants remained below grade. The site is currently used for various operations and is planned for redevelopment. Sevenson’s contract to perform the ISS Remediation was awarded on a competitive proposal basis and was one of the largest ISS cleanup projects conducted in the country to date.
