Environmental Site Assessment
Legal and Efficient Assessments
Our Environmental Site Assessments satisfy or exceed current requirements of the All Appropriate Inquiry process (ASTM in Standard E1527). ESAs are designed to protect your exposure to liability under the Innocent Landowner Defense to liability issues imposed by the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA).
Our ESAs disclose the potential for soil, surface water, and groundwater contamination, chemical spills and residues, hazardous substances, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), underground storage tanks, petroleum releases, and other regulated building materials. Through a Phase I ESA, we conduct a thorough review of historical land uses, interview previous landowners and site operators, observe the site in detail, survey potential hazardous substances, research chemical or petroleum product spills, environmental liens, enforcements actions and disclose evidence of conditions that could pose a risk to a property. Our goal is to provide you with what you need for your planned development or other real estate property transaction.
Phase II Assessments
If needed, a Phase II ESA can be done to identify the extent of contamination and to recommend strategies for clean-up and remediation.
Beyond that, our professional staff can assist with assembling the most cost-effective clean-up and remediation crews to restore property value.
