The Terre Haute former manufactured gas plant (MGP) is located at the intersection of Dresser Drive and Oak Street and occupies 7.7 acres. The operational history began in 1870 until 1950 with the decommissioning of the manufacturing plant. The facility contained both aboveground and underground structures such as gas holders, tar wells, tar storage tanks, oil storage tanks, and ammonia storage tanks. Indiana Gas Company, Inc. completed an excavation of structures and associated soil contamination. Approximately, 6,500 tons of impacted soil were removed and approximately 98,000 gallons of impacted water were removed from the site. The site was divided into three areas for remediation. Area A was the former 100,000 cubic foot relief holder where contaminated debris/soil and water were removed. Area B was the location of below-ground tar tanks, tar wells, and ammonia storage tanks where structures and impacted soil were removed. Area C was the location of former above ground oil tanks where surface soil was remediated. The site was remediated to VRP July 1996 Tier II nonresidential standards for soils, except for Area B where a risk assessment was completed for saturated subsurface soils.
