Background

The 16-acre North Shore Gas North Plant former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) site is located in Waukegan, Illinois, at the intersection of Pershing and Dahringer Roads. The site has been contaminated with MGP residuals from historical plant operations. Previous EPA actions in the 1990s and in 2013 addressed the most egregious sources of contamination.  Site investigation and ground water monitoring are ongoing to characterize the remaining contamination at the site. The site is not listed on the National Priorities List (NPL) but is considered to be an NPL-caliber site and is being addressed through the Superfund Alternative Approach.
