Commitment to Continued Progress
The comprehensive cleanup program at the Bay Shore former MGP site and its related gas operations support facility in Brightwaters is yielding excellent results. Today, the program is primarily in the Operations, Maintenance and Monitoring phase, with all major construction completed.
Current site status
We have completed the majority of remedial construction activities at the site. We would like to express our appreciation to all of our neighbors in the TOI for their cooperation and patience during this important project. In 2015, National Grid upgraded the 87 Community Road oxygen injection line to include injection wells in the Long Island Railroad right-of-way and expanded the OU-1 South oxygen injection line across N. Clinton Avenue. The work is intended to target remaining downgradient groundwater impacts.
During active construction, NYSDEC produced and distributed periodic reports posted on its and National Grid’s websites for the project and e-mailed to residents, with highlights of recent remedial activities and notifications about upcoming work that could affect normal community activities. These reports were suspended at the conclusion of active construction and can be found in the Documents and Resources section of this website.
NYSDEC Fact Sheet
The NYSDEC produced and distributed Fact Sheets at the significant milestones in the project, including when remedial investigation reports were completed, remedial action plans approved and when major construction activities were about to begin. Recently, Fact Sheets have been produced to update the community on overall site status and on-going work in the operable units. Fact Sheet October 2015 - Site Cleanup Update
