PG&E is committed to addressing environmental impacts from our historical operations. As part of this commitment, we are voluntarily conducting investigation and remediation work at the site of the former Potrero Power Plant and a portion of the adjacent Pier 70 property. This includes impacts from a former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) that operated on the property from the 1870s to the 1930s.
PG&E is conducting this work in collaboration with the Port of San Francisco and other stakeholder groups, under the oversight of the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board (Water Board) and a number of local, state and federal regulatory agencies.
