Manufactured Gas Plants

Manufactured Gas Plants in New York State

From the late 1800's to the mid 1900's, hundreds of manufactured gas plants across New York State supplied homes and industry with fuel for heating, cooking, and lighting. Today, the New York State DEC is overseeing the investigation and cleanup of contamination left behind from these plants.

The NYSDEC approach for addressing MGP sites is presented in a full color booklet entitled "New York's Approach to the Remediation of Former Manufactured Gas Plants (PDF)" (19 pages, 1.29 MB). This document includes a discussion of the history of manufactured gas plants as well as the technical and administrative challenges facing the remediation of these sites.
