A Transaction Screen or Phase I ESA identifies potential environmental risks through a site visit and available site history record search such as historical photographs and maps, land records, environmental databases, and interviews. In the case a potential environmental hazard is identified, a Phase II ESA may be recommended.
It may involve sampling soil, surface or groundwater for contaminant levels and vertical/horizontal extent. All ESAs are performed per ASTM standards by qualified environmental professionals. If remediation of a site becomes necessary, we can also design/manage mitigation and disposal of contaminated materials.
