There are typically two phases to an Environmental Site Assessment (ESA). In Phase I, we identify potential environmental hazards and conditions associated with a property. The purpose of a Phase II ESA is to conduct a deeper investigation into any environmental concerns raised in Phase I.
ESAs are performed in accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) No. E1527 in order to satisfy the requirements of the innocent Landowner Defense. During an ESA, available historical records are also reviewed to assess potential offsite impacts.
Phase I ESAs Include
Government Records Review
Historical Records Review
Phase II ESAs Include
Soil sampling Utilizing Geoprobe Technology
Groundwater Monitor Well Installation
Ground Penetrating Radar
Investigate Nature and Extent of Contamination
