Webinar | Overcoming Unique Challenges Associated with MGP-Impacted Sediment During Design and Construction

March 8 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EST


Join us on March 8, 2023 for a technical webinar regarding Overcoming Unique Challenges Associated with MGP-Impacted Sediment During Design and Construction.

Presentation Description

Manufactured gas plants (MGPs) are industrial facilities that historically produced
gas from coal, oil, and other feedstocks for use in heating, lighting, and cooking.
From the early 1800s through the mid-1900s, an estimated 3,000 to 5,000 MGPs
were operating nationwide. Former MGPs typically require remediation, and many
MGP site remedies include sediment components, introducing additional challenges
throughout project phases.


Challenges and considerations for managing the sediment component of
remediation at MGP sites will be presented. These will be presented by examining
two sites located within New York State at which Parsons has performed work on the
remedial design and remedial construction components of the remedy.

Results/Lessons Learned

Sediment remediation at former MGP sites requires careful consideration of both
the upland and in-water components of the remedy, as well as variable conditions
within the in-water portion of the site. Detailed research on historical site structures
and incorporating flexibility into the design to account for variable field conditions
during construction are key to successful remedy implementation.
