All Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESA) are not created equal. Individuals or organizations lured by a low price and lulled by the apparent security of generic procedures risk significant liability if the assessments they accept are not up to industry standards.
A CPEG Phase I ESA supplies in-depth environmental information about a site, thus minimizing the associated liability and the risk of owning or financing an environmentally impaired site, according to the standard of the American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM). There is no cost efficiency in skimping on a Phase I ESA.
The purpose of a Phase I ESA is to evaluate the pre-purchase environmental condition of a site, identify recognized environmental conditions, and to comply with the due diligence property inspection requirements of the Innocent Landowner Defense under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980 and subsequent amendments. CPEG Phase I ESA services include:
Conclusions and recommendations are drawn based on the observations and information collected by CPEG. The findings, including conclusions and recommendations, as warranted, are summarized in a written report. If the potential for contamination is discovered in the Phase I ESA, a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment may be recommended
A variety of investigation methods are available for performing a Phase II ESA. These methods may include performing geophysical surveys to search for buried metallic objects; collecting and analyzing soil and/or groundwater samples; performing hydrogeological investigations to determine groundwater flow and aquifer properties; performing asbestos, mold, and lead-based paint surveys; and other methods appropriate to respond to the results of the Phase I ESA.
If contamination is discovered, CPEG can continue the investigation to determine the extent of the impact (Phase III ESA), and develop and implement a plan to address the impacts, keeping in mind the environmental regulations and their application to the planned use for the site. CPEG solutions are described on “ Remediation Engineering , System Installation, Operation and Maintenance”, “ Business Solutions” and “ Management Strategies” pages.
