Weekly Update 10-29-18

The PSE&G site remediation group and its environmental contractor, Panther Technologies, Inc., are nearing the end of their activities related to the current remediation phase of the Harrison former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) site.  This work began mid-January 2018 and is expected to be completed late November 2018.
