Mobile Gas to host community open house on former manufactured gas plant

Posted December 14, 2015

Mobile MGP Historic Pix 01 PUB-60-06 MAXINDWe’re making progress! Mobile Gas Service Corporation has come a long way on its voluntary cleanup project of its former manufactured gas plant (MGP) located at the corner of Broad Street and Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue in Mobile.

We have been working with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management and our community partners to preserve a part of our history and create an open greenspace for the community to enjoy. On December 15, 2015 we would love to share with you an update on our cleanup efforts of the MGP site and what you can expect to see in the future.

The community open house will be held on Tuesday, December 15, 2015 from 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm at the Dearborn YMCA – 321 North Warren Street, Mobile, Ala. 36603. 

In 2010, Mobile Gas Service Corporation enrolled the MGP site (located at the corners of Broad Street and Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue) in the Alabama Department of Environmental Management’s Voluntary Cleanup Program. Since then, testing and analysis have been conducted and the property is ready to enter the remediation phase of the project.

Representatives from Mobile Gas Service Corporation, the MGP consulting team and community partners will be in attendance to answer questions about the project. The public will also get an update on individual projects from the following exhibitors: City of Mobile, Mobile Housing Board, National Estuary Program, Mobile County Health Department, MCPSS Environmental Studies Center, Bishop State Community College, and the Alabama Minority Business Enterprise Center.
