Phase I & Phase II Environmental Site Assessments
Financial institutions, developers, and purchasers of property are greatly concerned about current and past uses of that real estate. The American Environmental Specialists, Inc. (AES) team of experienced professionals will investigate and analyze each property site to determine the presence of environmental hazards that may affect the value of the property, and create potential liability for the purchaser. Where environmental hazards are found, AES can provide and execute cost-effective solutions for remediation and clean-up of the site based on Phase I, II and III environmental site assessments.
The purpose of a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is to identify through research and visual inspection, any environmental problems resulting from the use of hazardous materials. A Phase I ESA includes evaluating storage, handling, treatment, and disposal of materials and waste, as well as investigating the site for evidence of underground storage tanks or spills. A site assessment involves researching the history of the facility, soil type, ground and surface water. AES reviews the regulatory files on the site and those surrounding the property and/or properties.
When a Phase I investigation uncovers questionable conditions, a Phase II sampling study is required. The AES team collects the necessary samples that may be needed. These can include soils, water, and other hazardous materials. AES then prepares a written report detailing the results, applicable regulations, recommendations, and cost projections.
AES coordinates remediation procedures for environmental problems identified during the Phase I and Phase II investigations. These may include excavation, disposal, bio-remediation or any other treatment of conditions subject to regulatory action.
