Phase I & II Site Assessment Services
What is a “Phase I” site assessment?
A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) will protect your assets by offering the degree of detail required to legally meet your due diligence obligations. Our reports are guaranteed to meet or exceed the ASTM-E-1527 standard for Phase I Environmental Site Assessments. In some instances, further testing of media may be required to meet this obligation.
What is a included?
The Phase I ESA:
This report comes with a computerized color map showing your property at the center and any sites found on the databases surrounding your site. We also include color digital photographs that will bring your project to life and illustrate the property in vivid detail. All telephone conversations will be summarized in the report findings and the actual telephone memos can be found in the appendix of the report. Your report will be presented in written form and a copy will be provided on CD. There are no hassles if you need additional letters of reliance, this is simply part of our services.
What is a “Phase II” site assessment?
If testing is needed at a property to definitively address an unknown condition, we can provide you with Phase II Environmental Site Assessment Services through our network of sub-contractors. We will try to save you money by reducing the number of samples by first researching the conditions at the project. We will use the site topography, known or estimated groundwater depths and, if available, existing surrounding sub-surface studies to develop a sampling plan that will define the contaminants associated with the problems identified in the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment.
What if contamination is found?
If contamination is found and the conditions are suitable, we will apply to the appropriate regulating agencies for closure with no further action. If necessary, we can also offer you advice, planning and design services for Phase III Environmental Site Assessment projects.
What is a included?
Our Phase II projects include several different sampling techniques and media. Some examples of our Phase II projects include; surface soil samples, soil gas sampling, subsurface soil and groundwater samples from borings and monitoring wells, pond sediment sampling, drinking water samples, drum testing and tank testing. All of our samples are properly preserved, documented on a chain of custody and delivered to an NVLAP and state certified laboratory for analysis.
