June 2019

National Grid is preparing to begin field work for the remediation of the former Citizens Works Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) Site. Remedial activities are expected to begin this summer and take about 20 months to complete. The work will be conducted under the oversight of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.

The remedial design for the site was approved by NYSDEC in 2018. Following approval, National Grid has procured contractor and environmental consulting services to perform field construction activities. In addition, earlier this Spring National Grid began working with off-site private property owners to conduct pre-construction surveys of adjacent properties in anticipation of the start of work. NYSDEC held a Public Availability Session on June 13th at PS 372 to review the remediation plan and schedule for the Citizen’s remediation project.
