When is an Environmental Site Assessment Phase I Required?
As part of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), Phase I ESAs are typically required during commercial real-estate transactions and are meant to gather information to develop an independent scientific opinion about the environmental condition of the property. ESAs attempt to identify the presence of hazardous materials and/or petroleum products and if there is a material threat of release or a past release. This information will inform on the need for further investigation, such as a Phase II ESA.
When is an Environmental Site Assessment Phase II Required?
A Phase II ESA is completed if evidence of a potential release or environmental conditions are identified and/or known to have occurred at a site. Information gathered during a Phase I ESA will inform on and focus Phase II investigative efforts. Arroyo’s scientists have successfully designed and completed Phase II environmental site assessment studies for various clients. These Phase II studies have included site specific study designs investigating various potential pollutants in groundwater, surface water and soil mediums.
