350 Irving Street Framingham Remediation Project

Why Are We Doing This Project?

The property at 350 Irving Street in Framingham, Massachusetts, was occupied by a former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) that operated from 1889 until 1967, producing gas from coal and oil for distribution to homes and businesses in Framingham and surrounding towns.

Portions of the property were impacted by these historical activities, and this project will help clean up those byproducts left behind.

Following implementation, the proposed remediation project will result in substantial environmental benefits and will also make a meaningful and lasting difference to the adjacent property owners and the community in general.

What Work Is Being Done?

Future remediation will include containment and removal of soil and groundwater contaminants as well as removal of stream sediment within Beaver Brook. A comprehensive Wetland Restoration and Buffer Zone Enhancement Plan will be put into place, and upgrades to the existing stormwater management system will bring these systems up to current MassDEP standards.
