PSE&G Former Harrison MGP Site: Final Project Update – April 14, 2022

The PSE&G site remediation group has now completed restoration work related to the remediation of the Harrison former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) site. The remediation project began in July 2020 and soil remediation was successfully completed in December 2021. 

This will be the last regular, weekly update for the project.

On behalf of its contractors and employees, the PSE&G site remediation group would like to thank the Town of Harrison; the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey; PSE&G employees; the owners, property managers and residents of Vermella, Steel Works, Cobalt Lofts apartments; La Joia restaurant, and all our neighbors for their cooperation and patience throughout the remediation and restoration of the former MGP site.

The project website, HarrisonMGP.com, will remain available through June 2022. If you have questions, please call the Project Information Line at (855) 356-2383 or email us at comments@harrisonMGP.com
