Tidewater Environmental Project Overview
Certain process residuals from these gas and electric operations have remained in the environment at facilities such as these after they were closed down. The Narragansett Electric Company d/b/a National Grid (“National Grid”) is responsible for the investigation and remediation of these historic site impacts. The by-products of gas production and power generation that remain on site are being addressed through remedial activities conducted by National Grid under the approval and oversight of the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM).
Today, National Grid continues to operate a natural gas regulating and interchange station and an electrical substation and switch house on the site. The remainder of the site is currently vacant and security is provided by surrounding chain-link fencing.
This website provides information related to the former Tidewater MGP and power plant investigation and remediation efforts. We hope this website, a part of our public participation and outreach efforts, is helpful and informative.
