Taking Responsibility

At PG&E, we have a responsibility to be accountable for all of our actions, including protecting the environment. Our environmental commitment includes thoroughly evaluating sites throughout our service area that may have been impacted by our historical utility operations. We work collaboratively with our neighbors and the surrounding communities to address these sites in a manner that respects the individual needs of the community and minimizes disruptions to people who live, work or play in the area. Project details are shared with the community and we strive to respond to questions and concerns as quickly as possible. If you need to reach us regarding any of our environmental initiatives, please feel free to contact us at remediation@pge.com or by calling us at 1(866)247-0581.

Addressing Historic Gas Plant Sites

Working closely with state and local regulatory agencies, PG&E has a voluntary program to investigate and, where necessary, remediate former manufactured gas plant (MGP) sites that the company historically owned or operated. READ MORE

Protecting Vital Resources

Our investigation and cleanup efforts continue to progress at the company's Hinkley and Topock natural gas compressor stations, where historical operations resulted in chromium affecting soil and groundwater. At Hinkley, PG&E continues to work under the direction of the Water Board on additional investigation activities as well as on a plan to complete the cleanup. READ MORE

Transforming Former Utility Facilities

PG&E also has reached important milestones in its efforts to redevelop former utility facilities for reuse, which includes ongoing restoration of the former Hunters Point Power Plant site in San Francisco and converting a former geothermal waste facility in Lake County into wetlands, wildlife and tree plantations, which serve as an outdoor classroom for local science students.

Sustainable Remediation

In concert with its commitment to sustainability, PG&E has developed a Programmatic Sustainable Remediation Guidance Manual, which presents a dynamic roadmap and systematic approach for PG&E and its contractors to implement sustainable practices and principles throughout the entire lifecycle of PG&E remediation projects. The Guidance reflects a close collaboration with the California Environmental Protection Agency’s Depart of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) and industry experts on sustainable remediation. It emphasizes implementation of sustainable best management practices and quantification of related benefits across environmental, social, and economic elements. READ MORE
