What are the Benefits of ESAs?

 

By performing a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment you can avoid the consequences of missing a potential problem that can result in losing a real estate sale, expensive litigation and legal penalties and unnecessary environmental sampling that could cost tens of thousands of dollars.

What is a Phase I ESA?

 

A systematic process by which the assessor attempts to determine if a specific property is, or may be, subject to contamination from past or present site uses and from adjacent site uses. Information collected should be confirmed. A Phase I ESA involves no testing. 

What are Phase II, and III ESAs?

 

Phase II: Confirms the existence of contamination as well as the type and amount of contamination through soil and water testing. This is often done by drilling boreholes and installing ground-water monitoring wells. The scope of this work is delineated by what is discovered in the Phase I (location of testing, contaminants to be tested for, etc.) and will vary for each site depending on the type of contamination suspected.

Phase III and beyond: Verifies the extent of the problem provides alternatives for site remediation and finally, site cleanup. The scope of work and the cost is directly dependent upon the nature of the contamination and the site itself.
