Phase I Environmental Site Assessments

Phase II Environmental Site Assessments are recommended if an area of concern or recognized environmental condition (REC) is identified.  Further investigation and sampling may be necessary to determine if an environmental liability exists.  With proper evaluation, the area of concern can be characterized, liabilities assessed, and conclusions drawn.  Accurate and precise analytical data and recommendations for remedial actions can then be determined as necessary.  Remediation cost estimates can be prepared in order for buyers, sellers and lenders to evaluate environmental conditions through a realistic and regulatory perspective.
