What is Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) Management? 

In the 1800s, the gas that was used for heating and lighting was manufactured from substances like coal and oil. The facilities where this occurred are called manufacturing gas plants (MGPs). Many of the byproducts from gas production were usable, but the ones that were not were disposed of or stored on site. Over time, those byproducts often leached out of their containers and contaminated the soil and groundwater. Now, site owners are often liable for cleaning it up, and bring in contractors like Cascade for MGP management services.

Manufactured Gas Plant management

Proper MGP management requires an extensive understanding of the lithology and most appropriate remediation technology options.

With 20 years of experience working on MGP and PCB remediation projects for our utility company clients, we’re able to provide efficient and cost effective solutions.

Whether you need a traditional remediation solution, or a turnkey option with pre-designed programs and full-scale implementation of innovative remediation techniques - we’ve got you covered. Our relationship with waste disposal facilities and key subcontractors provide efficient waste management, environmental cap maintenance, utility and surveying companies and additional supporting services.

We provide our utility clients with a range of MGP, PCB, and civil construction services, including:

  • Sheet pile installation
  • Dewatering and water treatment
  • Excavation
  • Gasholder removal
  • Rendering / solidification 
  • In situ stabilization (ISS)
  • Odor control / vapor control
  • Soil erosion / sediment control 
  • And more

We can also offer master services agreements or basic ordering agreements to set rates and terms allowing negotiated services to be expedited so critical issues can be addressed quickly, efficiently, and cost effectively.
