Atlanta Gas Light Site Cleanup Complete


Georgia Power and Atlanta Gas Light (the Companies) completed remediation of the saturated soils at the former Brunswick Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) in September 2007.  In January 2000, the Companies conducted soil remediation above the water table.  The soil was certified and approved by the Georgia EPD as meeting cleanup criteria.  Since that time the groundwater has been monitored semi-annually.  The 2007 corrective action addressed the deeper saturated soil below the water table.  The Companies are confident that the 2007 corrective action will allow the affected groundwater, which is isolated to the site, to be reduced substantially. 

   Between June and September 2007, the Companies removed 8,350 tons of saturated soils, which were impacted with dispersed tar and oil by-products of the manufactured gas process.   The excavation of saturated soils extended to a depth of 40 feet below ground surface (bgs).  The excavation was backfilled with a clay and cement mixture up to 11 - 15 feet bgs.  The remaining surficial soil was backfilled to grade.

   The Companies will be reinstalling groundwater monitoring wells on site.  The wells will be monitored semi-annually until the groundwater meets cleanup criteria. 

Thank you to Georgia Power for providing this update.
