About the Metropolitan former Manufactured Gas Plant Site

Gas used for cooking, lighting, heating and commercial purposes was manufactured and distributed at the Metropolitan Manufactured Gas Plant. A predecessor to the Brooklyn Union Gas Company began operating the Metropolitan site as an MGP in 1871. By 1904 the Brooklyn Union Gas company was operating the site.  The medium-sized facility produced gas until the 1930’s, at which time it was decommissioned and the site became used for storage. By the late 1940’s portions of the site had been subdivided and various parcels sold, and the remainder of the site was sold in the 1950’s. 


The 7.8 acre site has multiple parcels and owners, with the largest parcel having been developed as a Pathmark supermarket.  The eastern portion of the site was investigated under a Voluntary Clean-Up agreement by its then owner, the U.S. Postal Service, and subsequently developed into a Lowe’s store. All of the site is developed, either with buildings or paved parking lots.   National Grid has no liability with regard to the eastern portion of the site, but does for its western and southern portions. National Grid is responsible for the investigation and remediation of these portions of the site because it was operated by a predecessor company (Brooklyn Union) during the time MGP-related contamination occurred. 


This website provides information on the Metropolitan former MGP Site, the Remedial Investigation of the site, and opportunities for public participation.
