Project Overview

Charter executed this large-scale in-situ stabilization project and remediation of a 24-acre former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) site in Elizabeth, NJ. The remediation took place within an active facility around critical power-generating infrastructure amongst a densely populated residential neighborhood.

Active Facility

As the site is a former MGP and active LNG site, there were countless utilities to safely abandon or work around. In total, approximately 50 utilities have been located via soft-dig, cut & capped. Additionally, Charter designed and implemented a support system for an active natural gas line in the area of excavation.
