Former sites of gas manufacture present problems for remediation and reuse of the sites. In some cases, polluted groundwater and surface waters are near the sites. The study examines the history of the manufactured-gas industry of the United States, its production processes, disposal trends, waste toxicity, methods of site investigation, and the current status of manufactured-gas sites. The report is intended as a guide to those who are examining and evaluating manufactured-gas sites for either environmental risks or possible remediation. Six manufactured-gas sites and one spent oxide disposal area were visited during the project, and case studies were prepared for six former gas-manufacturing sites, two byproduct tar utilization facilities, a creosoting plant and a coal tar processor. The current status of manufactured-gas sites in the United States was determined by contacting State and regional environmental officials and by discovering how their regions were treating manufactured-gas sites.
