Not illustrated. 1997-09 edition. Excerpt: ... The MGP process generated residues that remain in the soil and water resources at the sites. These wastes, according to the US EPA, primarily include coal tar, water-gas tar, oil-gas tar, oils, tar-oil-water emulsions, and waste sludges. The contaminants in the soil are primarily volatile organic compounds (VOCs), polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), cyanide (CN), arsenic and lead. Research and Development Project NMPC is conducting a full-scale research and development project to evaluate technologies to remediate MGP waste sites. The demonstration program is being conducted with the support of the US EPA, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), and various utility groups such as EPRI and GRI, who are co-funding the project. Throughout the project NYSDEC played an important role in overseeing and monitoring this program. Together, NMPC and NYSDEC conducted a well-organized demonstration which included public involvement. NMPC implemented a public participation program that involved voluntary public meetings and an informational hot-line. This effort increased public awareness of the demonstration and helped obtain local support. For the program, NMPC selected the Harbor Point Site, in Utica, New York, for its size, location, and variety of pollutants found at the site. NMPC constructed a new research facility at the 65 acre site, where, over the next few years, NMPC will conduct a series of remediation demonstrations. The results of the project will be used to determine the best method for remediation of MGP sites, both on NMPC property and elsewhere. For the program, NMPC is contracting with technology vendors to demonstrate their full-scale remediation systems. NMPC will evaluate each more
