Editorial Reviews


"Hatheway has compiled a true opus magnum… Quite simply, if you’re not sure about gas works and your job requires that you are, then this is £130 of investment whose return will be rapid and enduring. ‘Treat the contents as a starting point for your own site and waste characterisation: use the contents to plan, test and season your results’."
––Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology, 2014

About the Author

Allen W. Hatheway is a registered professional geologist and engineer in several states and has practiced for 50 years, half of it with prominent geotechnical and geo-environmental consulting firms. He received his baccalaureate at UCLA and graduate degrees from the School of Mines of the University of Arizona. He has held adjunct faculty appointments at the University of Southern California (Civil Engineering), Boston University (Geology), and taught Geological Engineering for nearly 20 years at the University of Missouri. His specialties are site and waste characterization and remedial engineering for environmental litigation, mitigation of geologic constraints, and for hazardous waste cleanup, particularly of former manufactured gas plants. In 1973, the American Society of Civil Engineers named him California’s Outstanding Young Civil Engineer. He is a Fellow of ASCE, GSA, the Geological Society (London) and an Honorary Member of AEG.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Coal-tar sites, most of which are former manufactured gas plants (MGP) are an interesting and challenging niche within the environmental remediation profession.

This is the most comprehensive single study of manufactured gas plants and related facilities to have been published to date. The author discusses in detail the unique health and ecological hazards and remediation challenges that MGP sites can pose. The text also includes a very comprehensive history of the manufactured gas industry and discusses manufacturing processes and equipment.
